THE COUNCILLORS WHO WILL DECIDE WHETHER THE NEW ALDI STORE IN BRIGG GETS THE GO AHEAD THIS WEEK
Five votes by elected councillors will be sufficient to decide whether the bigger-than-originally-planned Aldi store in Brigg gets the go-ahead.
North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee will consider the retail giant's application at its meeting in Scunthorpe Civic Centre on Wednesday, January 16.
Aldi is seeking approval to construct the store on land off Bridge Street, close to the A18.
The planning committee is chaired by Brigg & Wolds Ward councillor Nigel Sherwood, who is also a member of Brigg Town Council. Barton's Coun Jon Evison is the vice-chairman.
Others councillors serving on this important committee are: Sandra Bainbridge, Frodingham; John Collinson, Ashby; John Davison, Bottesford; Ivan Glover, Broughton & Appleby; Mick Grant, Ashby; Derek Longcake, Bottesford; Dave Oldfield, Burringham & Gunness; and David Wells, Ferry.
Options open to the committee are to grant or refuse the application or to hold a site visit and then reach a decision at a later date.
In the case of the Aldi store, a detailed report has been prepared by council planning staff, with a recommendation that the committee grants permission.
