Councillors have approved a two-storey extension to Marantha at Pelistry on St Mary’s.

The new ground floor kitchen and dining area, with first floor bathroom, will replace what is described as a poorly constructed and damp single storey, stone lean to.

The current fibre-cement roof will be replaced by a slate one.

In October 2008, permission was granted for a similar proposal that was never implemented. The current proposal is much smaller.

Planning officer, Harriet Bowen, recommended the proposal, which she said was in keeping with the existing property and would improve the appearance while having limited visual impact as it was at the rear.
