ASDA application to be delayed yet again!

We’ve been advised that County Highways still haven’t withdrawn their ‘temporary holding objection’ to the Asda application. So it looks like a decision won’t be taken on this application until the District Council planning meeting in May!

The delay obviously means that the application will be decided after the May elections and will be in the new municipal year. So there will be some new councillors looking at this at their first ever planning meeting, there could be a new councillor for Downhall and Rawreth Ward (if Chris Black loses) and possibly a new chairman of the planning committee.
