Delay on Barnstaple supermarkets decision
Applicants request more time to address ‘negative impacts’.
A MEETING to determine two major Barnstaple supermarket planning applications has been postponed.
North Devon Council’s planning committee was due to meet on December 19 to determine separate plans for Asda and Morrisons stores either side of the town’s new Taw Bridge.
But just weeks before members were set to debate the proposals, both applicants have requested that the meeting be put back.
A spokesperson for the council said: “This was at the request of the applicants as they wish to address matters currently identified as negative impacts.”
She said it was not known when the proposals will now go before the committee.
Last week, the Gazette reported how Devon County Council, BID Barnstaple and Barnstaple Town Centre Management all lodged formal objections to the proposals due to concerns about their impact on highways and the viability of Barnstaple town centre.
