Millpond Street Development
The building on this site was National Tyres before becoming JS Carpets warehouse and sales site. Recently JS Carpets then moved to a purpose built building
beside Kings Acre Car Park and this site has been purchased by Morrisions to allow the car park to be extended and the access to the rear service yard altered
inline with the store extension (see planning application DCSE2008/2414/F for more details).
