I heard that Tesco and Sainsbury were bidding against each other to have a 'metro' unit. But this will only be a 3rd of the units max due to planning. Also, no parking for a large foodstore on site.
Finbally, also heard these units will not go live until Nov 2013, hench the blue boards going up in place of the hordings.
I did ask the question, They said they expect so with a smile, but no detail offered.
I expect so, otherwise I will sue them for mis selling a 'cosmopolitan' marina life style with vibrant bars and restaurants. This is clearly stated in the sales material they have been throwing around!
Still, the m local looks quite clean, not much Morrison yellow in sight. http://tinyurl.com/9wfxpfj
I would have loved to set up a small business there but I can imagine the rents and rates will send small business out of the running! I didn't enquire but if high streets are anything to go by then impossible to sustain. That's why the big players will undoubtably go there.
