Plans for a new supermarket in Ashford have emerged.
An application to build a new food store, plus a pub, at the Finberry development, also known as Cheeseman’s Green, has been submitted to Ashford Borough Council (ABC).
Also included in the plans are three new shops, 192 car parking spaces, plus associated landscaping.
The foodstore would be around 2,600 sqm in size, while the shops would be 140 sqm each and the public house 460 sqm.
It is not yet known which operators would open at the development.
The application was received by the council from applicants Cedarvale and CC Projects, who own the land.
A decision on the scheme is expected in the New year.
Work on the land at Cheeseman's Green, off the A2070, started in 2013 by developers Crest Nicholson, who re-named the site Finberry.
It is being developed in several stages and when finished it will comprise of up to 1,100 new homes.
Other on site facilities will include a care home, school, community facilities, sports courts and public open space.
Finberry Primary School, which has already been approved, will consist of a two-storey building, car parking, pick up and drop off bays, play areas and a grass playing field with hard and soft landscaping.
It will accommodate up to 60 pupils a year, and will be built in Stour Meadows, which is one phase of the major housing development.
