Opposition to plan for new supermarket at Woolston


COUNCILLORS and nearby residents have lodged objections to plans to convert a car sales and repairs garage to a small supermarket at Woolston, Warrington.
Five neighbours, Woolston Parish Council and local borough councillors are all opposed to the plan put forward by Sainsbury’s for the site at the junction of Manchester Road and New Cut Lane.
But planning officers will recommend approval when the scheme is put to the borough council’s development management committee tonight (Wednesday).
The objections are based on traffic congestion, parking, highway safety, noise, privacy and lighting – mainly due to the proposed opening hours of the new “mini market” which would stay open until 11pm.
Officers say the area is part of an existing “local centre” and, as such, is suitable for a retail outlet.
They point out that the existing buildings would be partly demolished as part of the scheme and that the new supermarket would have a smaller footprint than the existing industrial/commercial buildings.
