UPDATE: Developer’s last ditch bid to salvage Asda plan


The Selsey Asda developer has said it will make a last minute change to its plan which will ensure the refusal cannot be passed.

Chichester District Council’s planning committee this morning voted in favour of refusing the application which includes 144 homes, a restaurant, hotel and petrol station.

However the Environmental Statement publicity for this application expires tomorrow so the committee could only advise officers of the decision they would be minded to make and this decision could only be implemented by officers if no material changes to the plan were made within 24 hours.

But Landlink Estates has informed the Observer it will make a material change tonight and ensure the committee’s refusal does not proceed.
