Supermarket plans for Sodbury quarry land

Consultants representing the quarry and developers interested in developing land belonging to Hansons have approached South Gloucestershire Council.

There is at present no application for planning permission but they are looking for your views. The developers are keen to keep the shops in the High Street viable by improving the access and the supermarket will bring extra people into the town. All our shops already compete with the supermarkets in Yate - but what do you think?

The Town council is getting a presentation from the developers and when they have produced a preliminary plan there will be a period of public consultation.

The amended plans will go to South Glos Council. They are unlikely to be able to give final planning consent but will recommend to the Secretary of State.

The Main Proposals
1. 300 Homes - these would be mixed - ranging from detached houses with some flats in order to meet government guidelines on housing density.
2. A small supermarket - both Waitrose and Sainsburys are interested.
3. Improvements to the current car park, riverbank and probably more car parking spaces.
4. A bridge over the river leading to a mews development of approximately 6 shops giving a much better pedestrian way from the car park to the High Street.
