The Co-op has now submitted updated plans for its proposed store in Sutton on the triangle of land at the A142 roundabout.
The original 32 car parking spaces weren’t enough in council officers’ view, so the applicants have removed one of the two original hot food takeaway outlets, and a small additional retail unit, leaving only one takeaway alongside the Co-op store itself. This will create room for a total of 49 car parking spaces. There will also be space for twelve bicycles.
The store is proposed to open from 7:00am to 10:00pm Monday to Sunday. The applicants have not yet said who will operate the takeaway unit.
The applicants are proposing vehicle entrance and exit from Ely Road, where the old road joins Ely Road. They intend to create a three-metre wide shared cycle and pedestrian way on that side of the road, with a pedestrian refuge to serve pedestrians crossing from the Tramar Drive side.
Comments on the revised application are open until 28 July, and can be made here.
