A possible 300 jobs for North Devon
Your views are wanted about plans to develop the existing Evans Transport Site on Braunton Road in Barnstaple, as a new Morrisons foodstore.
With a sales floor area of around 30 thousand sq ft (slighter smaller than the Bideford store), the supermarket would provide around 300 new jobs.
What's being proposed:
Improved grocery shopping choice
374 car parking spaces - 22 disabled and 8 parent and child.
78 cycle spaces
petrol filling station
dedicated recycling area
better transportation links
Landscaping & ecology
- Comprehensive scheme of hard and soft landscaping
High quality materials
Site boundaries, sympathetic to surrounding land
Sensitive habitat areas will be retained and enhanced
- new traffic light controlled junction on Braunton Road
widening of the section of Braunton Road
traffic lights will be synchronised
a new bus lay-by on Braunton Road
safe pedestrian and cycle routes extended to the Tarka Trail
The plans will be on view at the Guildhall in Barnstaple on Friday the 4th and Saturday 5th February.
It's likely a full planning application will be submitted in March.
