Bridgnorth’s long-running supermarket saga could come to a close today as district councillors discuss a controversial land agreement which is key to the proposals. A district council committee was meeting behind closed doors to talk about an agreement made in 2002 which meant a vital piece of land could only be sold to Tesco. If councillors decide to scrap the agreement it would pave the way for Sainsbury’s to extend its store at Smithfield and build the long-awaited Whitburn Street relief road. Permission for a new Tesco on the site was refused earlier this month after councillors said it would damage Bridgnorth’s economy.
If they can do it, why can't North Norfolk District Council?
