Despite opposition, the plans had been recommended for approval by council chiefs ahead of today’s development management sub-committee meeting.

However members of the committee have overruled the decision and refused the application highlighting concerns of the height of the multi-storey development.

The news has come to the joy of campaigners who highlighted a range of issues concerning parking, traffic and road safety.
