With planning permission granted it’s full steam ahead in Buckland Brewer to get the shop up and running.

A NEW community shop in Buckland Brewer could be opening its doors by the end of the year.

A planning application to convert the vestry of the Buckland Brewer Methodist Church into a community-run shop has been granted.

The plans included adding a disabled access with a ramp and raised platform, creating a new dedicated entrance and using the lower level store room to create additional office and storage space.

Work will start on the building once significant funds have been raised which includes a shares scheme being run by the management committee.

The committee has also secured funding through the Big Lottery grant to pay for a part time manager for the first few months.
