Hyundai\Sainsburys Development Update

On Thursday 3rd February the Planning Committee rejected the application to redevelop the Hyundai Garage in the middle of the High Street, which had been earmarked for a Sainsbury’s Local convenience store.

It is a big blow for Whitton that the investment and jobs that this development would have provided for Whitton are now uncertain. It is still important that a long term tenant is found for this site and I will now be working with the WBA, the Council and other stakeholders to consider our Town Centre’s next options.
