ASDA lodges proposals to redevelop Blantyre store

View 18 DaySupermarket ASDA has lodged a planning application with South Lanarkshire Council to redevelop its store and related commercial units in Blantyre.

The redevelopment on Glasgow Road will serve to deliver much needed improvements to Clydeview Shopping Centre and represents a multi-million pound investment.

Under the proposals, external improvements will be made to the ASDA store and the retained western parade of units, while the eastern parade of units will be demolished to make way for new units for a mix of shops, service and professional offices, food and drink or hot food shops.

Alterations will be made to the existing petrol filling station, a small sales kiosk will be introduced and ‘Click & Collect’ lockers will be installed beside the store with canopy and dedicated parking area.

Car park alterations will include improved taxi rank facilities, accessible spaces and parent & child parking spaces.

The development proposals were brought forward following a comprehensive assessment by ASDA of the trading environment at Blantyre, including the lack of demand for the vacant shop units. The complete development can be expected to contribute positively to the vitality and viability of the town centre.

The proposals contained within the planning application will involve the reuse of existing brownfield land in a sustainable manner.

With demolition of the eastern parade of units the public realm will be greatly improved. The new, purpose built units will serve to meet the specific requirements of the identified operators and could be occupied for a range of uses.

The existing Asda store façade will be improved along with the retained western parade of units fronting Glasgow Road.

Alan Jones, senior communications manager for Asda, said: “We are pleased to be lodging our planning application for the redevelopment of Clydeview Shopping Centre. Our proposals represent a multi-million pound investment into Blantyre and will help enhance the vitality and viability of the centre.”
