Sainsbury’s is planning to extend and enhance its popular foodstore in Chaddesden, Derby, to provide customers with an improved shopping experience. The extension will also create up to 150 new full and part-time jobs
for local people.
The plans to improve the store include:
• A 28,700sq ft (2,670sq m) extension to the existing sales area
• The relocation of the customer café to a new first floor mezzanine level,
• accessed by lifts, stairs and travelators
• An improved store layout and a wider product range
• Improved customer facilities
• A new glazed customer entrance
• A new single storey car park level, added to provide more than 200 extra
• parking space
• New cycle hoops
• An Improved road layout, with traffic lights at the junction of The Sidings
• and Wyvern Way
Sainsbury’s is already progressing plans to improve traffic congestion at the junction of The Sidings and Wyvern Way, which will benefit all customers to the retail park. These improvements include installing traffic lights and altering the road layout.
To increase the number of car parking spaces, Sainsbury’s plans to build a new level over the existing car park. Vehicles would access this via a ramp, with lifts and a travelator giving pedestrian access to the store. Disabled and parent/child spaces would be available on both levels.
