ASDA‘s planning application to build a new supermarket in Newport will be heard by the Isle of Wight Council Planning Committee on Wednesday 2nd July.
The meeting will begin at 4pm and held in the Council Chamber at County Hall, Newport. As usual members of the public can attend the meeting to hear the proceedings.
An application put forward by owners of Newport Football Club, South Coast Leisure, offering an alternative to the ASDA application will also be heard at the same meeting.
A spokesperson for ASDA said,
“The proposal put forward by the owners of Newport Football Club will be heard at the same meeting. Our project is the only one that guarantees an ASDA on the Isle of Wight.”
If ASDA get the go-ahead, they promise 450 new jobs for Islanders.
