WORK to transform the site of a former pub into a supermarket can now begin after the latest plans were approved.
Wake Architects Ltd recently applied to South Derbyshire District Council for permission to make amendments to a condition imposed on the application to bulldoze the Masons Arms pub, in Burton Road, Midway, and build a supermarket.
The applicants asked to allow for demolition to begin before highway alterations and improvements take place.
This application has now been decided and means the pub demolition is now imminent.
It marks the latest development in the controversial plans which were originally refused by district councillors and given the go ahead on appeal by an independent government inspector. The application was also the subject of a petition attracting hundreds of signatures.
