As previously reported, permission was granted several years ago to build on the site. The original proposals also included shops, community facilities, houses and apartments which are thought by the cattle market company to be no longer economically viable.

The latest application is for a foodstore only, with associated means of access, servicing, car parking and landscaping following demolition of existing buildings.

The application is for Full Planning Permission and will be discussed by the Driffield town council at its April meeting which will make a recommendation to ERYC, whose members will make the fonal decision.
