A CAR lot has been given the green light to continue trading from its current base by planning chiefs.

Bolton Council officers have granted Mega Star Autos, in St Helen’s Road, permission for the former haulage depot to be used as a car sales unit.

They considered that the development did not harm the character and appearance of the area or have a negative impact on neighbours or nearby roads.

However, as a condition of the permission, the garage owner must mark out no fewer than 28 parking spaces within two months.

The on-site cabin must be removed in July 2021 and the business must abide by set opening hours.
