The Communities Secretary Erics Pickles has tonight approved a decision to let Sainsbury's build a new supermarket at the current site of Bristol Rovers Footabll Club.

That approval means that Rovers can now proceed with their joint scheme with the University of the West of England to build a new stadium on the UWE Campus in South Gloucestershire.

Sainsbury's unveils plans for £160 million development in Bath

Sainsbury's has revealed plans for a multi-million redevelopment of the land around its store at Green Park in Bath. The £160 million scheme would include a doubling in size of the existing supermarket, while creating offices and shops and building 270 new homes.

Green Park Station would remain but be given a makeover. The scheme depends on Sainsbury's striking a deal with Homebase for the DIY firm to move elsewhere in the city. The company aims to submit a planning application in the autumn but the new supermarket wouldn't open until at least 2015.
