Hopkins Developments Ltd
Commercial Area Including Travelodge, KFC, Waitrose, Countrywide Store and Costa Cofffee
Long Close, Wincanton
We have successfully gained planning permission for the development of a Travelodge, Marston's pub, and KFC at a site on the western edge of Wincanton, known as Long Close Commercial Area. This is a commercial A303 motor services site that will gain the majority of trade from travelling customers. Applications are due to be submitted shortly for the development of a small Waitrose store, a drive-through Costa Coffee Shop and Countrywide Store.
Work on this project has included the preparation and submission of SHLAA and Local Plan representations, securing a certificate of lawfulness, infrastructure application and the applications for the commercial units themselves.
The site has and will continue to bring significant employment and commercial benefits to the town. Ongoing dialogue with planning officers and members means that all consents secured so far have been delegated by officers.
