SAINSBURY'S won permission last night to go ahead and build a superstore at Ashton Gate.

Just what we need to build a sustainable society - yet another bloody supermarket, a giant one smack in a place where local high streets would suffer too! It still may not happen though. Its simply not the case that this represents 'a giant step forward for a new...stadium'. Its not planning applications but is the town green process that has to come to a resolution either by negotiation/mediation or the legal process if necessary. If a town green goes ahead then this green belt site for the new stadium is ruled out - and would Bristol City want to sell Ashton Gate, at least on the currently thought of timescales, then??

6-1 victory: Fans greet the council decision with a standing ovation and cheers after councillors voted by six votes to one in favour of the plan. Sainsbury's won permission last night to go ahead and build a superstore at Ashton Gate.

The decision means a giant step forward for a new 30,000-seat stadium on a former landfill site at Ashton Vale.

Councillors on the planning committee which approved the supermarket plan last night voted 6-1 in favour, with two abstentions.
