CO-OP has submitted application to open a new store in Tadley, it has been revealed.

The supermarket chain has applied for a new premises licence at the proposed 42-home retirement complex in New Road, Tadley.

McCarthy Stone, the builder behind the retirement complex, has just submitted a second planning application for the building after its first submission was rejected by the Basingstoke Deane Borough Council on an issue surrounding affordable housing.

The builder won an appeal against the refusal, paving way Co-op to apply for premise licences in the proposed building.

A Co-op spokesperson said: “We’re delighted to confirm that we’ve exchanged contracts on a retail unit in Tadley, which is part of a new residential development.

“Work and planning are still very much in the early stages but we’re looking forward to joining and serving the local community.”

The developer’s plan is to redevelop Reading Warehouses building and 48 New Road, Tadley, into a complex with 42 one- and two-bedroom retirement living apartments for private sale, and a new retail space.
