Inspector rejects Morrisons appeal over Welsh site

13 June, 2014

Morrisons has had a bid to build a petrol station next to one of its supermarkets in North Wales rejected.

The retailer was appealing a planning application that had been turned down, but it was dismissed by a planning inspector.

Morrisons had applied for planning permission for a new filling station and shop on a site next to its store in Ffordd Llanarth, Connah’s Quay, which it opened in 2010.

However, Flintshire Council rejected the plan on the grounds that it would have resulted in a loss of potential land for new homes.

The planning inspector noted that local planning authorities in Wales are required to ensure a five-year supply of land for housing, and that the land was required in order to meet that need.
