WORK to resolve flooding issues in a Basingstoke supermarket car park is continuing this year after two large structures were built. 

As previously reported, work to the car park at the Waitrose store in Basing View began in 2022 because of problems with flooding.

The purpose-built 73,000-square-foot store only opened in November 2015, initially co-located alongside John Lewis, which closed in 2021.

Basingstoke Gazette: A large structure has been built in the car park at Waitrose

However, the top floor car park has suffered problems with flooding.

Waitrose began maintenance work in 2022 to resolve the problems, which involved the erection of various large, temporary structures to protect the work from rainfall.

In April 2023 a spokesperson for Waitrose told the Gazette that the work was still “in progress” and was being done “in phases” with the hope it would be completed by the summer that year.

However, several more large structures have since appeared in the car park and the work is yet to be finished.

Half of the car park has been blocked off as a result.

A spokesperson for Waitrose said: “We're determined to finish the works on the car park in the next few weeks, and we’re really grateful to our customers for bearing with us.”
