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.
The ‘hybrid application’ also outlines plans for up to 350 homes; a 60-bed hotel; employment space; community facilities; shops; restaurants; cafes; a pub and take-away.
