Barnstaple Asda plans go public
Major proposals for the redevleopment of Anchorwood Bank outline retention of historic Oliver building.
ANTICIPATED plans for a new Asda supermarket in Barnstaple have been registered by North Devon Council planners.
The application for a 6,820 sq m retail food store on land at Anchorwood Bank, referred to as Raleigh Works, Taw Wharf, was submitted by joint applicants Asda Stores Ltd, DS Wessex Barnstaple Ltd and Leaderflush & Shapland Holdings Ltd in December.
The size of the application means it has only now been validated by the council and formally opened to public consultation.
