Some very good news at last. The planning department report has recommended that the St. John’s Road/Manse Road proposal should be turned down. However this is a very cautious “hooray” as the development committee can still overturn the recommendation. We feel that there would have to be a very good reason to push the development through though, as it fails council policy measures on many counts. Let’s hope the committee make the right decision on Wednesday 21st. If you want to read the full report it’s on the portal under documents, or you can look at it here: 15_02898_FUL-DM_SUB-COMMITTEE_REPORT-3208816
Many thanks to everyone who lodged their comments with the council. There were 455 objections and only 11 in support of this proposed supermarket.
