Tameside Council has approved plans for a 90,000 sq ft Tesco store and district centre to be built in Hattersley, Greater Manchester.
The council approved planning for the scheme on Wednesday 8 September which is now undergoing a judicial review by the Government Office North West which is standard procedure for a development of its size.
The development is planned for derelict land off Stockport Road and Ashworth Lane, known locally as the 'Mottram Roundabout' site.
As well as the council, the project has the support from partners Peak Valley Housing Association, the Homes & Communities Agency, and developer CTP. The scheme is part of a masterplan for regenerating the area.
CTP and Faulkner Browns Architects won a national competition run by Tameside Council to develop the site.
Last month, the project faced criticism from the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment which argued that the proposals seemed to prioritise the supermarket above anything else and it overlooked the public transport links.
CABE was asked to be consulted as it often does on large supermarkets despite it not being a statutory consultee on the project.
Peak Valley Housing Association said the plans will create 450 new jobs when the derelict land is redeveloped.
Phil Corris, managing director for Peak Valley Housing Association, said: "This is an important part of the multi million pound regeneration plans for Hattersley."
