The supermarket wrote to ‘key stakeholders’ in the village to notify them of the plans.

Planning permission was originally granted back in 2014.

We are pleased to advise that we are now looking to move forward with slightly amended plans for this significant investment in Colwick, supporting economic growth at Colwick Industrial Estate, providing new jobs supported by training in a wide variety of roles; and, providing a convenient shopping location for local residents.

“We have therefore applied to Gedling Borough Council in order to make minor material amendments to the existing planning application, through a Section 73 application. The amendments seek to modernise the store frontage to include additional glazing; amend the back of house area and service yard to meet the latest requirements; and, deliver a new Argos store within the supermarket.

It added: “Subject to planning permission, we hope to begin construction works next year and open the store in summer 2021.
