Terrington St Clement workshop plan approved by councillors
A businessman’s plea to keep an extension to his West Norfolk workshop has been upheld by borough councillors.
Lee Kiley, who runs a vehicle upholstery business from his home on Green Marsh Road, Terrington St Clement, built an extension to his garage to accommodate the operation.
And his application for retrospective planning permission was approved by West Norfolk Council’s planning committee when they met at Lynn town hall on Monday.
The application was originally put before committee members in November, but was deferred when questions were raised about the ownership of the land covered by the application.
A report published ahead of this week’s meeting said the submission of additional documentation had addressed those issues.
But, both neighbours and parish councillors voiced objections to the application ahead of the meeting, primarily about noise coming from the site.
The parish council also claimed that building works had been carried out over a dyke without permission.
However, committee members accepted planning officers’ views that any issues relating to the operations of the business could be dealt with via the imposition of planning conditions.
