Council fights back at supermarket
Report by Charlotte Richardson
NORTH Somerset Council says a Worle supermarket is not justified in seeking costs from the unitary authority.
Last week the Mercury reported how bosses at Sainsbury’s, in Queens Way, is in dispute with the council over a refused application.
Earlier this year, it submitted a retrospective planning application for pieces of metal to go on top of the supermarket wall.
North Somerset Council planning officers refused to let them stay, but now the store has gone to the Planning Inspectorate to appeal against the decision and try to claim costs from the council.

This week the unitary authority hit back at the move, saying Sainsbury’s has not demonstrated it has incurred any ‘unnecessary or unreasonable costs’ because of the proposals.
The supermarket says the relatively high levels of crime in its service yard led to it installing the rotary spinners.
