Darwen superstore plans make progress
11:37am Friday 1st February 2013 in News
PLANS for a new supermarket in Darwen are expected to go before the council in mid-October.
Lucite International, an acrylic products manufacturer in Market Street, wants to build a food store on its land to help fund a new research and development facility on the site.
The plans also include the relocation of Equipe Tyre and Autocentre.
The proposals were presented to the public during a number of consultations and have been amended accordingly ahead of a planning application being submitted later this year.
Chris Murren, of architects The Harris Project, said: “We have taken on board some very positive comments from the general public and local traders.
“And we have made some changes to the plans including the introduction of additional landscaping and the preservation of on-street parking bays.”
