Plans deferred in October

Council bosses deferred four applications for new supermarkets in October over fears they could adversely affect Castleford town centre. Plans by Sainsbury’s to turn the B&Q store on Aspen Way into a food store, Aldi’s application for a new supermarket off Park Road and proposals for a new mezzanine floor at the Asda store on Leeds Road are expected to be discussed by members of the council’s planning and highways committee at the same time as the Five Towns Park.
