PLANNING: New convenience store approved in Arnold

The new development will be accessed directly from Arno Vale Road.


Gedling Borough Council planning department have approved plans for a new convenience store in Arnold.

The plans submitted by PD Architecture in 2022 relate to a site listed in planning documents as Chris Brennan Haulage, Sunnyhome, Greendale Road, Arnold, Nottingham, NG5 6QD.

Planning documents advise that the existing use for commercial haulage had generated traffic to and from Greendale Road however this use has now ceased and the new development will be accessed directly from Arno Vale Road.

The planning statement that accompanied the planning application advises that the retail unit is expected to be operated as a local convenience store to help meet the day-today shopping needs of local residents.

It will be open seven days a week from early morning until late evening selling a basic range of groceries, ready meals, sandwiches and snacks, beers, wines and spirits and a range of fresh fruit and vegetables.

The building, with a total floorspace of 367sqm, will have a sales area of 255sqm which is below the threshold in the Sunday Trading Act, 1994, meaning that the store will be able to open without restriction, seven days a week.

  1. I thought when Arno Vale Rd extension ie from Somersby Road to Gedling Road it was supposed to be part of the ring road. So no road access was allowed. When there was heavy snow and residents of Weaverthorpe Road accessed this road it was stamped on and barriers built. Can see there will be more accidents. It will also be used as a cut through to Sandfield Road. Bad decision.

  2. You can’t access Greenwood Road from the new site so can’t be a cut through unless I’ve read the plans wrong – the only entrance /exit is to Arno Vale Road?
