PLANS to build an additional house on a new row of terraces have been given the go ahead.

An extra house is set to be built at the development in Hutchinson Way, creating a terrace of five dwellings.

The terraced houses had already been granted planning permission but caused anger among Radcliffe residents.

This is because the developer was accused of removing trees without permission.

The grassy land at the site contained mature trees until last year when they were cut down before the original application was approved.

Planning permission was granted for seven dwellings and refused for one dwelling in June 2018 but the following February planning permission was granted for the erection of eight dwellings.

This latest change involves building five dwellings, which would be one over and above the approved scheme.

Planning agent Barry Cullen spoke about the latest proposal at Tuesday's planning committee meeting on behalf of the developer Owl Estates.

He said: "We fully appreciate that some local residents opposed the application scheme and we respect that and will make sure that the area is improved by this development."

Councillors voted to approve.
