UPDATE: Sainsbury's formally lodges appeal over council's refusal of plans for new Braintree store
6:06pm Tuesday 20th May 2014 in News
Sainsbury's has formally lodged an appeal against Braintree Council’s decision to reject plans for a huge new store in braintree.
Braintree Council threw out the supermarket giant’s proposals for a store on the Broomhills Industrial Estate in Braintree in November, despite a petition of almost 2,000 signatures supporting the plans.
Councillors argued the proposed store would have a detrimental impact on trade in the town centre.
Last week, the Times exclusively revealed Sainsbury's was planning to launch an eleventh hour appeal.
A spokesman for the supermarket chain has today revealed that has now happened.
The appeal was formally lodged last night.
