Ilkley: Store investigation under way

Have your say

an investigation is under way after workmen moved onto a proposed new supermarket site in Ilkley while planning talks are still ongoing,

Tesco is currently awaiting the outcome of an application to renew planning permission for the new store and the redevelopment of its Springs Lane site.

A spokesperson from the company said it has now discharged all the necessary planning conditions of the previous planning permission granted by a Government planning inspector on appeal three years ago.

Bradford Council confirmed they are investigating after machinery rolled onto the cleared plot off Railway Road and Mayfield Road.

The application is believed to be determined next month.
