Greyhound supermarket plan submitted

Simon Donohue

Land Securities has submitted a revised planning application for a supermarket at Chaser Court on the Greyhound Retail Park in Chester.

Proposals lodged with Cheshire West and Chester Council include the demolition of a unit occupied by the Cineworld cinema chain and construction of a 75,470 sq ft store.

Land Securities originally submitted plans for a 55,000 sq ft food store at the site in 2009.

No supermarket tenant has been identified.

The architect is Ratcliffe Groves Partnership and Savills is agent.

Cineworld, whose lease at the Greyhound Retail Park expires in 2015, was confirmed as the new tenant at a planned 11-screen complex near Chester last year.

Hercules Unit Trust, the specialist retail warehouse fund advised by British Land and managed by Schroders, secured the deal as part of a wider £13m leisure project on Broughton Shopping Park.
