ELG Planning, acting on behalf of our clients, are currently preparing a full planning application for the Redevelopment of a Sainsbury’s Local and office accommodation at the Elm Ridge Garden Centre site.


The development proposes the creation of a Sainsbury’s Local on the ground floor, with office space allowance to the first and second floors. The office space is set to comprise of 14no. office rooms and 4no. meeting rooms. The existing building enjoys an unconstrained retail floor area of 870 sq metres. This has historically been used for the sales and display of products associated with the garden centre. The new store will be slightly less than half this floorspace at 389 square metres gross with a net sales area of 260 sqm
