J D Wetherspoon complete sale on Bideford Carpet and Furnishings store.

PUB chain J D Wetherspoon has completed a deal to purchase a site in Bideford.

The deal on 9 Bridgeland Street was completed yesterday (Thurs) and the company now has planning and licensing permission.

This week, the Gazette reported a planning application was submitted by J D Wetherspoon for a proposed new pub in Bideford.

The application for a revised floor layout at the site, currently Bideford Carpet and Furnishing Centre, is currently awaiting a decision.

The plans included an outside terrace with doors that could be opened in the summer, a bar and a kitchen.

On the first floor, the plans showed toilets, a ladies ante room, and store room.

In November 2011, the Gazette reported the pub could bring 45-50 new jobs in the town.

Planning permission to convert the retail store into a public house was granted by Torridge District Council in May last year.

There are currently no proposed dates for the opening as yet.
