Waitrose Submit Planning Permission for Store in Chipping Sodbury
Waitrose has now formerly lodged its long awaited planning appication for a supernmarket and housing in Chipping Sodbury near Bristol
The proposal which has been in the offing for the last 3-4 years, has divided opinion in much the same way that any major planning proposal does.
Support is broad based with apparently 70% in favour.
My feeling is that the store will breathe a vibrancy into the town which is lacking at present.
Waitrose is a destinaton store which will attract new visitors to the town.
The car parking arrangements will need to be addressed and a maximum 4 hour period ( as with the Bath Store) would be required to ensure visitors stay and use the other shops and restaurants in the town
