Sainsbury’s store in Colwick set to get go-ahead


Plans for a new Sainsbury’s supermarket in Colwick are expected to be approved by Gedling Borough Council on Wednesday (August 5) night.

The proposal, which includes creating a new Sainsbury’s supermarket, Argos store and petrol station, has been recommended for approval.

If approved, construction work will start before the end of the year with the new store opening in summer 2021

Sainsbury’s have said that over 100 new jobs will be created for the local community when the new store opens.

They said if approved, Sainsbury’s hopes to start work on site before the end of the year and open the store by summer 2021. 

A spokesman said: “Planning permission was originally granted for a Sainsbury’s supermarket and petrol station in 2014. 


“Sainsbury’s has reviewed the requirements for the store and is seeking minor amendments to the previously approved planning permission. The minor amendments application seeks to update the store frontage to include additional glazing, amend the back of house area to meet the latest requirements and deliver a new Argos store within the supermarket.

They added: “The addition of the Argos store inside the supermarket will bring great choice, value and convenience to customers who can benefit from thousands of technology, home and toy products available for purchase and collection.

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s Property Director said: “We’re excited about the plans for our new store, which will provide a significant investment in Colwick, supporting economic growth locally, creating jobs and providing a convenient shopping location for residents. We are delighted that our amended plans are recommended for approval and hope to welcome the local community into the new store by next summer.”
