PLANS to create five brand new retail outlets in Weston have been given the green light - but the developer will have to stick to a number of conditions.A planning application to build new stores for B&Q, DFS, Comet, curtain and blind retailer Paul Simon and SCS were approved by North Somerset Council's west area committee.Applicant, Cranford Developments, proposes to put each retailer next door to each other in a building measuring more than 12,000sq metres in total off Aisecombe Way in Weston.A number of conditions were attached to the approval. One stated that all staff will have to park in a new car park and not elsewhere on the site.In August 2005, B&Q won a long battle with North Somerset Council to put a giant store on the same site. But the company then revised its plans and now wants to build a shop less than half the size, at 5,600sq metres.The complex would be built facing Flowerdown Bridge and Herluin Way, on the opposite side of the highway to the Nightingales storage depot.
