PLANNERS are urging the go-ahead for a store's bid to lift restrictions on what it sells.
Supermarket chain Tesco wants to have more space for non-food goods at its Brighouse store.
Retailers in the town are against the move, saying it could kill their shops.
But Calderdale Council planning officers agree with Tesco's bid.
Their recommendation to approve the move will be debated by the council's planning committee next Tuesday.
Tesco wants to increase the space for non-food goods from 15% of the net retail sales area to 35%.
These would include clothes, household items and white goods, such as fridges, washers and microwave ovens.
Planners said they thought the change would do no harm to other shops in Brighouse.
A report said: "There remains some risk that the increased non-food sales area will divert some trade from the town centre.
"However, the modest level of the non-food increase does indicate that any losses of trade are likely to be small scale and short term."
Calderdale threw out a previous attempt to lift the restrictions last year.
Tesco appealed and a public inquiry was due to open next week.
But it has been postponed pending the outcome of the latest application.
