Documents behind controversial plans now online

* The Dobson & Crowther site where permission has been given for the
supermarket to be built 

The official documents behind the granting of permission to two controversial planning applications in Llangollen are now available for public inspection.

They relate to the scheme to build a new supermarket on the site of the Dobson & Crowther printworks off the A5 and the related plan to relocate the factory to farmland at nearby Climedw.

Ian Weaver, Denbighshire County Council's principal planning officer, has written to local campaigner Martin Crumpton to say: "You will be aware that, having regard to the submissions, representations received, and the planning issues, Denbighshire County Council's Planning Committee resolved to GRANT planning permission for the applications proposing development of a foodstore on the existing Dobson and Crowther site, and for a replacement print works on land at Cilmedw, Llangollen, on September 19th.

"The County Council has now issued the Certificates of Decision on the applications. The Certificates can be viewed on the Council's website."

Reference numbers of applications are:

Erection of new print works building, with associated car parking, servicing, and related accesses, construction of substation, new package treatment plant and soakaways, surface water attenuation system, and new vehicular and pedestrian accesses off trunk road
Land at Cilmedw, Llangollen.

Demolition of existing printing works, erection of Use Class A1 foodstore with associated access, parking, servicing, landscaping, surface water attenuation system, and construction of new vehicular and pedestrian accesses
Berwyn Works, Llangollen.

The county council website and planning section is at

Feed the reference numbers into the search field and the documents should be available.
