The Conygar Investment Company PLC (“Conygar”) is pleased to announce that contracts have been exchanged with Sainsbury’s for the sale of 9 acres for a supermarket on our 93 acre development site at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, subject to the obtaining of a suitable planning consent. Conygar intends to submit a planning application early next year for a retail food store comprising 60,000 square feet of sales floor space, restaurant, 500 space car park and filling station.
The planned application will also include design proposals for circa 800 residential plots on the site including much needed affordable housing.
We believe that the potential arrival of Sainsbury’s, a quality food retailer, will widen the offer in the locality. An exhibition of the joint proposal will be held on 18 and 19 November 2011 to gain input from local people which could be included in the application. We will be reporting further on this project in due course.
Robert Ware, Chief Executive of Conygar, commented:
“We are delighted to be working with Sainsbury’s to present these plans for Haverfordwest. We believe that the proposal for housing and the Sainsbury’s store can work well together and should bring considerable benefits for the community.”
