Simply Fresh plan goes to appeal

Posted on May 29 2018 at 11:21:10

The long wait for “upmarket” grocer Simply Fresh to open for business in Alvechurch is set to continue.

Plans for a large extension to the premises in The Square at the bottom of Bear Hill were rejected by Bromsgrove District Council last autumn, saying they “would have an overbearing and overlooking impact on the surrounding dwellings”.

Parish councillor Marc Worrall told colleagues the applicant had now launched a formal appeal to the planning inspectorate. “I think it will take three or four months before that comes through,” he added.

The village Post Office is expected to have a counter within the Simply Fresh store and had been hoping to move in last year.
