Plans for a new supermarket on the Penzance Heliport site could go to judicial review.

It is over the way Sainsbury's got planning permission.

Tesco is not happy.

British International is selling the land but we do not know what this means for its flights to the Isles of Scilly and no-one from the company has returned our calls.

Cornwall Council has released this statement:

"The Council has recently received notice that Tesco is seeking permission to judicially review the Council's decision making process in granting planning permission to Sainsbury's to redevelop the heliport site in Penzance.

"Tesco is claiming that there was insufficient evidence to support the consideration of the loss of the heliport as a factor in deciding the application and that the Council acted unlawfully in not securing an alternative site in the locality.

"The Council is disappointed that Tesco has delayed so long and put this claim in as late as possible. The Council will be fully defending this claim but this process could take several months to conclude."
