Abbey Manor Group and Sainsbury’s are bringing forward plans for a new Business Park and Sainsbury’s store on this site. If approved, the plans could generate thousands of jobs for Yeovil and could help deliver a boost of millions of pounds every year to the local economy.

As you may remember, we held a public consultation in December 2016. Through consulting with the local community, Abbey Manor Group and Sainsbury’s have gathered the views of local people and, where possible, have incorporated feedback into the plans.

Following positive discussions with South Somerset District Council, we submitted a revised planning application to South Somerset District Council in September 2018. The proposals now better reflect the local area by including additional trees and hedging throughout the development site, reducing the height of some units in the business park, providing new access routes, and revising the design approach for the supermarket to incorporate timber cladding for a more natural feel. Attached to this email is an updated illustrative masterplan to help guide you through the proposed layout.

If you would like to view the plans online, please visit South Somerset District Council’s planning portal at www.southsomerset.gov.uk and enter the reference number 17/02805/HYBRID. A planning decision on our application will be made by South Somerset District Council Planning Committee in the coming months.
