Plans for a new supermarket in West Bridgford have been "approved in principle" by Rushcliffe Borough Council.

Sainsbury's submitted an application for a store on Wilford Lane, on the site formerly occupied by The Chateau pub.

Concerns had been raised about traffic and the impact on trade in the centre of West Bridgford.

The plans must now be submitted to the secretary of state for final approval.

Sainsbury's predicts the supermarket will benefit the economy and "complement" the smaller shops 1.25 miles (2km) away in the centre of West Bridgford.

A Rushcliffe Borough Council spokesperson said: "Rushcliffe Borough Council's development control committee last night approved in principle the planning application for a new Sainsbury's store on Wilford Lane, West Bridgford.

"However, because of its nature, scale and location, the borough council has to refer it to the secretary of state for consideration."
