A LONG-AWAITING meeting will see Cornwall Council make a decision on two controversial supermarket applications for St Austell.

The strategic planning committee will either approve or reject the plans in today’s meeting at Truro’s County Hall, which starts at 1.30pm.

The first plan, by Terrace Hill and Cornwall Council, which outlines a supermarket and new council offices in Penwinnick Road, has been recommended for approval if the developers meet certain conditions.

Broadley Park Properties’ application for a Morrison’s in Pentewan Road has been recommended for refusal.

The Cornwall Council planning officer’s report states that Penwinnick Road is the preferred site for a supermarket as it is closer to the town centre, giving more opportunity for linked trips.

The reasons given for recommending refusal of the Pentewan Road site are based on the retail impact report, and some concerns about traffic access.

    Here we go again, Cornwall Council giving preference to companies who buy land from them rather than those who don't, just like in Wadebridge. Sorry, failed to add comment : Object doesn't support property or method 't'
