Anglia Regional Co-operative Society
RPS submitted an application for a Co-op foodstore in an out-of-centre location.
The store will have a sales area of around 12,000ft2 with around 20% of the floor area given over to comparison sales. The store is proposed as part of a mixed use scheme alongside a funeral parlour (A1).
The Co-op foodstore proposed on this site is intended to provide for the needs of Littleport through a larger store with ample free car parking and a wider range of goods. It is envisaged that through this store local people may be encouraged to shop within Littleport instead of the larger stores in nearby settlements.
Lying in an out-of-centre location the application was supported by a Retail Assessment looking at need, impact and the availability of sequentially preferable sites.
