REVAMPED plans to build a supermarket in the centre of Tarvin have been temporarily shelved.
Bosses at developers Fifield Glynn have revealed that construction is ‘a long way down the track’ and that there has not been any official deal struck with a major supermarket retailer.
The proposals, to transform derelict buildings at 63 High Street into a supermarket, housing, officers and a restaurant, received opposition from various organisations and local residents, but were given the go-ahead by the Planning Inspectorate after appeal.
Despite the decision, developer John Fifield agreed to compromise on various issues and a revamped plan will be put before objectors within Tarvin Parish Council.
He said: “This is alternative scheme. When we have finalised it then we will be putting it forward and presenting it to the local community and the parish council. Hopefully they will support us on it. We are not in a great rush. We are living in uncertain times.”
The slow progress being made with the development will be a source of some frustration to various neighbouring businesses on high street.
Traders and business owners have previously stated that development in Tarvin is vital to secure growth and provide healthy competition for customers.
