Marks & Spencer retail park in Scunthorpe - decision due today (Thurs)
A decision on whether a retail park including a new Marks & Spencer store can be built in Scunthorpe is expected later today.
High Court judge Mr Justice Hickinbottom is due to reveal at 2pm whether the scheme, brought forward by Simons Developments Ltd, can go ahead.
A judicial review at the Administrative Court in Leeds has heard evidence from those supporting and opposing the retail park, which is also due to include a Debenhams store.
The development has been earmarked for the site of the Stephen H Smith's Garden Centre, on Doncaster Road.

North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee has twice voted in favour of granting planning permission for it.
But the judicial review came about when a legal challenge to the council's decision was brought by Zurich Assurance Ltd, trading as Threadneedle Property Investments, which represents Scunthorpe's Foundry shopping centre.
