Morrisons plans to extend lobby area
Morrisons has submitted a planning application to increase the size of the lobby of its Berwick store.
The supermarket intends to add an extra 30 square metres to the lobby area.
Plans lodged with Northumberland County Council show the existing entrances will be retained but new glazing will be added to the frontage to provide a sales area.
The North Road store has already undergone a significant expansion in recent years.
Berwick Town Council’s planning committee made no objection at its recent meeting.
The highways department at County Hall also has no safety concerns.
A highways officer stated: ‘The proposed lobby extension to entrance of existing supermarket will not create any road safety issues.
‘The proposed development is set-back from the highways and hence this will not impact on the existing highway network.’
