Sainsbury’s has now submitted a planning application to Bath and North East Somerset Council that, if approved, will see an exciting regeneration project for Bath Western Riverside and Green Park Station.
The application follows over two years of comprehensive consultation with representatives from the city’s cultural, historical, business and political groups, as well as the residents of Bath.
We aim to create an attractive, vibrant and sustainable quarter that will firmly establish the area as part of the City Centre and meet the Council’s long-standing regeneration objectives for Bath Western Riverside that is sympathetic to Bath’s status as a World Heritage City.
The plans will deliver a wide range of economic and social benefits to Bath, including around 300 new homes, creative employment and office spaces, a replacement foodstore and new retail units plus hundreds of full and part time job opportunities.
It will also revitalise the river frontage and the historic station building, making the area a community and visitor destination of lasting value.
