Work to complete new retail units at Anchorwood Bank in Barnstaple is on track for completion in March next year.

Building work at the site began in June, and in the last four weeks, the first steel structure of the retail units has been erected.

In the next few weeks, the retail park, which is being delivered by Wessex Investors, will evolve further as the building’s cladding will start go up.

Wessex Investors managing director Andrew Pegg, said the retail units remained on track to be finished by the end of March next year, with the confirmed shops and restaurants opening in ‘early summer’ 2018.

Retailers Next and DFS are already confirmed for the site, with restaurants Frankie and Benny’s and Chiquito also signed up.

Mr Pegg said Wessex are ‘talking to quite a few people’ about the remaining units and expected the retail park to be full by the time it is finished.
