A 20-storey Hilton hotel, a controversial Lidl supermarket and thousands of flats - mostly for students - have been given the green light in Manchester. The planning committee approved all 10 applications on the agenda today (June 1).

The meeting was the first to be chaired by Labour's Jon-Connor Lyons who is said to be the youngest person to ever run the planning committee. Speaking to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, the 26-year-old councillor said he wants to see more affordable housing built across the city during his tenure.

A 26 year old running a planning committee? Oh, bless his little cotton socks! I do hope they remembered to treat him to a Happy Meal straight afterwards? 🥰
