Sainsbury’s has been looking for a suitable site in Cheddar for some time. Following a detailed assessment of several sites, Steart Farm was identified as the most appropriate location.
Steart Farm was selected as it is in an area previously identified by the local authority for development and is close to Cheddar Business Park. The site also benefits from its position on the existing road network which can be significantly enhanced to create improved access for cyclists, drivers and pedestrians.
Although the proposed store sits next to an existing business park, landscaping around it has been carefully considered to reflect its overall rural setting.
