Update - December 2016
Having received planning consent earlier this year, the developers applied for a Building Warrant in May. The Council requested further information in late August, and revised plans were lodged in early October. Staff shortages within the Council and a heavy workload suggest that the issuing of a Building Warrant may still be some weeks away. Bearing in mind that the developer would then have to go to tender to secure the best balance between price and quality, it is now unlikely that we will see any construction starting until early in the new year. The probability therefore is that it could be into the autumn of 2017 before we have the new Co-op. CAA will continue to monitor progress.
