Green light for M&S development near Scunthorpe
The way is now clear for Marks & Spencer to establish a new store on the outskirts of Scunthorpe.
North Lincolnshire Council’s planning committee – meeting at Pittwood House, Ashby Road this afternoon – decided to grant planning permission for an out-of-town retail park on land in Doncaster Road, which opens the way for Marks & Spencer to return to the area.
The votes from the ten councillors were evenly split 5-5 leaving the final decision to Councillor Arthur Bunyan, chairman of the North Lincolnshire Council planning committee, who approved the development.
Campaigners pressed for the proposal by Simons Developments Ltd to be rejected because of its potential to cause a devastating effect on the town centre.
