“As you may be aware in May 2014 we gained planning permission for a new supermarket on the site.
Following an internal review we have decided we are unable to proceed with plans to develop our proposed new store on this site.
This decision has taken some time to reach and has not been made lightly, however in the period since our proposals were first announced, the food retail market and customer shopping patterns have changed considerably.
As part of an ongoing review of all new supermarket schemes, we’ve concluded that a viable scheme can no longer be delivered and we will be marketing the site as soon as possible.
We recognise that this news will be disappointing to you, however we will soon be opening our smaller supermarket in the town at Roynon Way which will bring a quality shopping offer for the people of Cheddar.”
