No Supermarket Confirmed for Lymm

Posted by Neil on Thursday, 12 February 2015 at 15:36:55

Detailed plans to open a food shop on the former site of Rushgreen Services in Lymm have been submitted.

Developers Brookhouse have sent Warrington Borough Council a planning application to clear the former petrol station site on Rushgreen Road and to build a supermarket in its place.

The detailed application follows outline planning permission being given the go ahead last year.

It is for a slightly bigger supermarket than originally suggested, with 57 car parking spaces and the creation of 25 jobs. A report included in the application states the potential owners of the supermarket still do not want to be named.

It adds: "The proposed supermarket would be of a modest scale. However, it would be larger than any existing provision at Lymm and provide the opportunity for local residents to undertake weekly shopping, thereby avoiding trips to large supermarkets at Altrincham, Warrington, Stockton Heath or elsewhere. The proposal would also introduce choice and competition from which local people would benefit."

A survey of shopping habits among people in Lymm, included in the application, showed that the most popular destination for households in the WA13 post code area is Morrisons at Greenalls Avenue, 16 per cent, followed by Sainsbury’s at Warrington 10 per cent, Sainsbury’s at Altrincham, 8 per cent, Tesco at Altrincham 6 per cent and Waitrose at Altrincham, 5 per cent.

The report concludes: "The proposed development is significantly larger in scale than the existing Sainsbury’s Local store in Lymm Village Centre or the Co-operative stores and Costcutter elsewhere in Lymm. It will therefore provide more opportunity for local people to undertake their main food and grocery shopping locally at Lymm. In this respect the current proposal is larger than the outline scheme. It will provide a greater choice and avoid the need to travel to large foodstores, at least for some main shopping trips."

A decision will be made on the application later this year.
