Goodwood Property Partnerships and Asda are working together to redevelop a former industrial site in Ware, Hertfordshire.

The proposed redevelopment site will consist of residential homes for the elderly and a commercial element, anchored by an ASDA store. The development partnership will include within the scheme a local nursery which is on the site and restore a historic Kiln building.

Goodwood’s managing director, Martin Joyce, said: ‘We believe that Ware as a whole will benefit from the comprehensive redevelopment of this former industrial site.’

Asda’s spokesman, Tom McGarry said: ‘We believe that there is a clear demand locally for a store of this type in Ware and that the Town Centre would benefit from this kind of provision to help keep people shopping in the town.’
