Proposals for a new Morrisons supermarket in Norwich, creating up to 250 jobs, will come back before councillors this week.

Members of Norwich City Council’s planning committee agreed in February to give the go-ahead for the store, at the Goff Petroleum and former Hartwells Garage site in Aylsham Road.

Although they granted approval, councillors left it up to officers to deal with a number of outstanding issues and it is those issues which have brought the scheme back to City Hall.

The plans will have to come before councillors again on Thursday, to sign off a number of “technical updates” to the proposal.

The issues are around how the developer deals with contamination on the land where the store will be built; how surface water will be drained; how the site will be accessed; landscaping and tree protection and over the travel plan for the store. Officers are recommending that councillors approve the application. In the report which will come before councillors on Thursday, they state: “The proposals further enhance the scheme and bolster the committee’s original resolution to approve the development proposals.”
