Barnhill Quarry, Supermarket and Houses - update

The supermarket is proposed to go where the
car park is now, with parking underneath.

If you haven't been to see the developers' exhibition yet, it's worth going. Their investigations have moved on a lot, but their ideas are really still at outline stage.

The road access would be from the roundabout at the junction of Wickwar Road with St John's Way. There MAY also be a road right through, coming out at Quarry Road. That would mean rebuilding that little bridge next to Jubilee Park, near the entrance to Ridge Woods. The cement works will be going.

This possible road access is going to one of the big questions. As it's only the supermarket and about 250 dwellings - about the size of one of the roads in south Yate - do they really need a second access? Or would it be a good way of taking traffic out of Chipping Sodbury High Street?

Please visit the exhibition tomorrow - Thu 28 June 3.00-8.00 pm in the Old Grammar School, High Street.

You can let Linda Boon ( or Sheila Mead ( know what you think about the development plans - email them direct, or follow the link "Contact your local Focus Team" on the right for an email form.
