Williton supermarket plans rejected by council

Plans for supermarket and offices in a Somerset village have been unanimously rejected by councillors.

Council officers had urged members to refuse the plans on the grounds that they would ruin trade for existing shops in Williton.

Businessman David Gliddon, who proposed the development, said he would appeal against the decision.

A total of 532 people had written to West Somerset Council about the plans, with 139 in support of a new store.
