EXCLUSIVE: Court Challenge to Malton Supermarket Plans Thrown Out

Wentworth Street Plan 200214 Malton

1:29pm 18th December 2014

A legal challenge to plans to build a supermarket on Wentworth Street car park in Malton has been thrown out by the Planning Court.

A Judicial Review was brought by the Fitzwilliam Estate, who were concerned the plans for a supermarket and petrol station would put it's plans to open a Booths on the Livestock Market at risk.

The row over the proposed supermarket has been going on for around six years.

Ryedale Council which stands to make around £5 million from selling the Wentworth Street car park to developers GMI Holbeck has welcomed the decision. It's leader Linda Cowling believes the supermarket could now open in around two or three years time.

She gave her reaction to the decision to Minster FM.

It's believed the Fitzwilliam Estate will be entitled to appeal the ruling. Roddy Bushell, Estate Manager at the Fitwilliam Estate told Minster FM:

“Naturally we are disappointed that the Planning Court has refused permission to apply for a Judicial Review of Ryedale District Council’s decision to approve the development of a superstore on Wentworth Street car park.  

“The decision has only just been officially released and we have yet to hear what the Estate’s lawyers advise in these circumstances.”
