Sainsbury's resubmits plans for Penrith development

A supermarket has resubmitted its plans to redevelop a Cumbria town centre after they were rejected.

The £77m New Squares superstore, flats and bars scheme in Penrith hit problems in 2008 when the recession led its Australian backers to pull out.

Sainsbury's stepped in, but Eden Council rejected its plans saying the proposed store was too big.

Now the supermarket has resubmitted scaled down plans which are being considered by council chiefs.
