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).

6th March 2009

The site has been graveled over, the construction equipment removed and tidied ready for the next phase to begin.
