After two years of waiting, Morrisons has been given planning permission for its proposed development at the southern edge of Ripon.

Submitted in June 2011, the plans include: a new 37,000 sq ft Morrisons store; a 60-bed hotel; the present supermarket converted into a DIY home/garden store; industrial and office units; plus access to the site created with a new roundabout on Ripon bypass.

When the plans were first announced, Morrisons said it expected the development to create 660 new jobs and 150 construction jobs as well as protecting 220 existing jobs at the site.

We want to know: do you think the development will benefit Ripon?
