Supermarket chain Sainsbury's has submitted a planning application to Wiltshire Council to redevelop a former garden centre in north Malmesbury.

A 30,000 sq ft food store, petrol station, cafe and three employment units are planned for the brownfield land site on the A429.

Sainsbury's reviewed their initial plans after receiving feedback following a public consultation.

Sainsbury's Ben Littman said the store will "complement" Malmesbury.

The Regional Development Executive added: "We have listened to feedback given at our public consultation and made a number of significant changes to the proposal. The final submitted plans reflect the best scheme on the right site for Malmesbury."

Sainsbury's say the the store will create 200 full and part time jobs.
