Apparently Sainsburys are very close to agreeing a lease at the empty unit at 18 Great Suffolk Street - yes, directly across from the Tesco Express!
Looks like they have:

Jesus! I assumed that was a wind-up. There's something mighty wrong with planning applications to allow this kind of nonsense. Developers really need to re-think how they design ground floor units in relation to the overall bulk of architecture. The shell format simply doesn't work for the benefit of those living in the area.

That will be four sainsburys within walking distance. Are they breeding?

And not a whiff of a Little Waitrose anywhere :-(

I live on G.Suffolk st. Was there a consulation with residents? I don't recall getting a letter from the council on this...

None was required.

This unit was original designated planning class A3/A4 (restaurant/bar). This class permits change to class A1 which would cover the shop.

Truthmonkey is right - the current applications lodged with the council are for the new shopfront, a new ATM and advertisement consent for the signage.

As such, the principle of a new mini-supermarket isn't something the council can take into account at this stage.

You are able to comment on the design of the proposed shopfront etc but there is nothing to stop Sainsbury's (or any other retailer) opening a shop at that location.

Got the consultation papers today for the ATM and shopfront. I wrote to the council for whatever it's worth - but I understand there is not much council can do on what sort of shop opens in there. I would have been ok with Waitrose, but who needs a 3rd (potentially 4th) Sainsbury's?!

Or Sainsbury's could have a proper butcher or baker or fishmonger in there, instead of packed lunches, frozen pizzas, crisps and alcohol! Maybe worth writing to Sainsbury's?
