Brett's vote axes Christian shop thumbnail

THE Chair of the Planning Committee of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has used his casting vote to deny a Christian charity shop retrospective planning permission for their premises in Antrim.
After a tie of six votes to six, Phillip Brett effectively brought the axe down on the Blythswood Superstore, which has been operating from a former car showroom on the Greystone Road since March last year.

Blythswood is now considering lodging an appeal.
