Bride Hall has exchanged contracts to acquire a 4 acre site in Wymondham where it plans a 35,000 sq ft food store. A planning application will be submitted in the autumn of 2011 with a decision expected in early 2012.
“The latest plans to transform a redundant site in Wymondham into a supermarket and public transport hub have been put on display.
A second public exhibition on the scheme, presented by Bride Hall Developments, took place at the Central Hall on Wednesday.
The developer hopes to build a 20,000 sq ft store on the former sale ground, next to the railway station, which will include spaces for 214 cars, as well as new bus stops and coach parking which could be utilised by train passengers.
It intends to create a new junction off Station Road into the site with a second access for service vehicles off Cemetery Lane.
Matthew Thomas, associate planning director at Bride Hall Developments, said the latest plans have taken into account comments left by residents at an initial exhibition held last month, which about 300 people attended.
Mr Thomas said: “The big change we have put in this time is traffic lights on the junction that serves the food store as a number of people were saying traffic could be an issue.”
Bride Hall Developments intends to submit a full planning application by the end of October.” Norwich Evening News 24/9/11.
