Sainsbury's has got the go-ahead for a store in Trowbridge town centre in Wiltshire.

The store, on the 7.5 acre site of the former Ushers Bottling Plant, has received outline planning permission and will open the store by spring 2010.

The store is part of a £30m mixed-use scheme, including a 28,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s food store.

Trowbridge Property Investments (TPI), the owner and developer of the site.

Jamie Baker, Sainsbury's regional development executive, said: ‘We're looking forward to the prospect of opening a store in Trowbridge and are committed to investing in the town. A new Sainsbury's will introduce a quality food retail offer to Trowbridge and provide residents with increased choice of where to do a weekly shop.

'The central location will also provide a boost to Town Centre retailers as shoppers combine trips to other stores.’

The scheme includes a 230 space car park, 123 residential units, 30% of which will be affordable, and public open space.

Preparatory works, including remediation of the site, is due to start within the next few weeks.
