In a joint development between Advance Northumberland and Morrisons Supermarket, the scheme will comprise of a 25,000 sq ft Morrisons food store, alongside another 25,000ft of other national retailers, a petrol filling station and a Drive Thru facility.
Located on the famous Northumberland ‘Coastal Route’, the development will transform the southern gateway into Amble and provide a destination of choice. It will bring jobs to the local area and ensure Amble has the shopping experience it deserves.
With over £10m of funds already invested in the town, Amble represents a high priority for Advance Northumberland. Alongside their recently completed development of The Amble Inn and ownership of Amble Links Caravan Park, this development will further promote tourism and leisure for the regeneration company.
As well as the 25,000 sqft supermarket, the additional c.25,000 sqft will be comprised of non-food retail, split across units ranging from 1,000 to 10,000 sqft. The development will also include improved vehicle access into the site, and improved connectivity to the surrounding housing for both pedestrian and cyclists and car parking.
Chair of Arch Cllr Richard Wearmouth said: “Working together with Morrison’s has been extremely rewarding, our joint plans will contribute a great deal to the regeneration of the Enterprise Park. This includes attracting private investment into Northumberland, creating new opportunities and jobs for local people while boosting the economy of Amble and surrounding towns”.
