Plans outlined for Gosbecks Road supermarket
10:00am Sunday 3rd February 2013 in News
DEVELOPERS want to build a supermarket the size of a hockey pitch in Colchester.
A scoping plan to build the store, in Gosbecks Road, has been submitted by Scott Properties.
The 2,000sq metre store would create up to 100 jobs.
The site is available because Colchester Council, which owns the building beside Colchester Wine Company, agreed last summer to merge their separate premises for the sale of the land to a supermarket company.
Paul Smith, councillor responsible for business, who is leading the project for Colchester Council, said: “This is a serious proposal.
“There has been considerable interest from supermarkets on the site.”
