A new Marks and Spencer Simply Food will be built on the south side of Harrogate after permission was given by Harrogate Council today.

After lengthy debate, particularly over the impact on neighbours and the road network, the committee voted to pass the plans for the Nidd Vale site.

Two councillors were against the proposals and two abstained, while the rest of the committee followed the planning officer’s advice to give permission to St James securities, which is overseeing the project on behalf of M&S.

More to follow.
