We’ve just produced a newsletter which gives an update on progress following the approval of the plans for the Matalan site back in March this year.

We’ve dropped in printed copies to our nearest neighbours and you can download a copy by clicking the button below.


Key dates

The key dates with the proposals – some of these could be subject to change – are as follows:

  • June 6th 2021 (confirmed): Matalan store closes – the company is looking at a new location.
  • July 1st 2021 (confirmed): Guinness Partnership take formal ownership of the site following Matalan’s store decommissioning.
  • Early August 2021 (precise date to be confirmed): Demolition and associated works begin and will take an estimated 16 weeks to compete.
  • Early 2022 (precise date to be confirmed): Construction phase starts.
