The decision may interest people in Llangollen opposed to a supermarket development at the Dobson & Crowther site on the A5.
The council’s own officers recommended committee members to refuse the application by Manchester-based developers Capital and Centric PLC for the former Griflex site at Ruabon Industrial Estate on the grounds the applicants failed to show there was a need for a store of this size in the area.
But at their meeting on Monday night, they decided to defer a decision on the plan until more up-to-date details are available for them to consider.
A public consultation on the Ruabon proposal held earlier this year suggested “overwhelming support” for the £6 million project, according to Manchester-based developers Capital and Centric PLC, with 92 per cent of those consulted voting in favour.
It is claimed the supermarket could create 250 jobs.
