Pembrokeshire CC plans to defuse a row over out-of-town superstore proposals by demolishing a junior school to give developers a central site, reports the Western Mail (p9).

The town of Fishguard, one of few left in Wales without giant retail development, is the focus of contentious proposals by several developers for out-of-town megastores.

After deciding to look for a site within the town centre which would meet tougher Welsh Office planning guidelines, the council has proposed demolishing the school in the town centre then rebuilding it with funds from the site's sale.

The town's civic society is supporting the idea, but some councillors are critical that the scheme could create traffic congestion in the town.
