Plans for a new convenience store on a Peterborough industrial estate have been approved.

MSP & NOBLE Group plans to turn a unit at Forward House on Shrewsbury Avenue in Woodston from premises used by an electrical training business into a convenience store.

The ground floor would be turned into the convenience store, with a ‘hot food to go’ counter while the first floor would remain as office use.

23 parking spaces are already provided outside the unit.

A number of objections were made with concerns such as increased traffic into the area as well as an increase in noise and smells of hot food, affecting nearby businesses.

Officers approved the proposal, however, on the marking out of clear parking spaces and a loading area. The retail space of the shop must not exceed 192 square metres and the shot food counter must be no bigger than five percent of the shop’s area.
