Cheltenham car park site plans are approved

Plans for the development of North Place and Portland Street The scheme has been drawn up by developer Augur Buchler

Plans for a mixed development on the site of the North Place Car Park in Cheltenham have been approved.

It means a new supermarket, multi storey car park and housing will be built on the land.

A meeting of Cheltenham Borough Council planners approved the application by 12 votes to two.

Campaigners had argued that a supermarket was an "overdevelopment" of a historic part of the town which did not give a good impression to tourists.

The proposal also includes plans for a public square, bus terminal and car parking.

The scheme has been drawn up by developer Augur Buchler.
