A supermarket chain is offering to provide a£1m new school in return for planning permission for a supermarket, in Settle, North Yorkshire, the Daily Mail reports (p24).

The Preston-based chain, Booths, is competing with three rivals, all of which are being considered by Craven DC.

But the offer is dividing opinion in the town, with some opponents calling the school sweetener 'immoral and appalling'.

The town's current Church of England school is said to be cramped and in 'desperate need' of replacement, but no money is available. Developers are meeting with residents to discuss the plans next week.
