The High Court is expected to agree to quash the planning permission that was granted last year for a new store at Brunel Road Industrial Estate.
Action group Save Our Shed, who wanted the Victorian rail shed at the site to be saved from demolition, raised the challenge on the grounds that the officer’s report and Planning Committee decision didn’t provide sufficient justification for departing from the Conservation Officer’s advice regarding the impact on the setting of nearby designated heritage assets, meaning the committee couldn’t have properly considered this issue prior to making a decision. It has now been confirmed that all parties involved are supportive of getting a Court decision to quash the earlier planning permission. But Aldi says that although disappointed by the decision, they remain confident of the council’s backing and hope to begin work shortly.
