AN application to turn a popular repair garage into a jet wash has been permitted.

Manor Garage in Walters Ash has fought a long fight to stop their landlords, Murco Petroleum Ltd gaining planning permission.

The Murco petrol station is alongside the repair garage.

But at the end of last month it was given planning permission by Wycombe District Council.

It was a delegated decision in consultation with the chairman.

Ken Chalmers, who owns Manor Garage rents the property off Murco and has been unable to renew his lease. He said he is going to wait to see what Murco tell him.
