Supermarket chiefs submit Morrisons plans
6:00pm Monday 19th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A SUPERMARKET could be on the verge of an extension if planning bosses give its proposal the go ahead.
Morrisons in Garland Road has applied to Tendring Council to extend the current supermarket in Freshfields Road from 19,000 square foot to 27,500 square foot which could create 30 job opportunities.
An exhibition was held at the Parkeston store in June for shoppers to look at and comment on the plans with Morrisons taking note of customer feedback.
Morrisons asset manager, John Robson, said: “The response to our application at the recent public exhibition was tremendous. “Of the 288 visitors to our public exhibition who completed comment forms, an overwhelming 99% expressed their support for the proposal."
