Ulverston superstore plans to be adjusted

First published in Business

CONTROVERSIAL plans for a new supermarket in the heart of Ulverston have been withdrawn and will be re-submitted.

Heritage group Keep Ulverston Special is continuing with its efforts to stop Robinson’s brewery building a 28,000 sq ft store at its Brewery Street site The firm claims the development could create 200 jobs and ‘enhance the viability’ of the town centre, but it has proved unpopular with many in the town ever since the plans were first unveiled last year.

South Lakeland District Council has now confirmed that Robinson’s will submit an altered application for the historic site, where beer was brewed for almost 240 years, in the near future.

Colin Pickthall, chairman of the community campaign group, said: “They haven’t gone away. We are keeping a very close eye on it and we will react as soon as Robinson’s put a renewed application in.”
