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.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
