Supermarket news - progress on Waitrose and Tesco projects

Waitrose has now committed to build a supermarket in Chipping Sodbury, possibly opening in 2011. This is part of a larger development incorporating some housing and smaller shops. There will be a pedestrian walkway across the Frome joining the supermarket to the High Street via a current private alleyway.

There is more detail in the Gazette report on Waitrose, and previous consultation documents are on Waitrose's consultants' website.

Meanwhile it is now expected that building works will start on the new Tesco store in Yate later this year. Demolition of the old store should start in early autumn, with a temporary store being provided before then.
