Start date revealed for construction of new Gloucestershire business and retail park

A planning statement submitted to Cheltenham Borough Council has revealed when work will start on a site off Grovefield Way in Cheltenham.

Developers Hinton Properties (Grovefield Way) Ltd said they will start building a drive-through Costa Coffee, Happy Days day nursery and Aldi supermarket on the land.

Situated next to Cotswold BMW's new showroom, construction of the new business and retail park is expected to last for 36 weeks - initial works, expected to last six weeks, followed by the the main construction.

A construction traffic management plan says workers will be on site 7.30am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm on Saturdays.

Developers have said construction traffic will be discouraged from using short cuts through local villages and surrounding residential areas with access to the site from the M5 and A40 via Hatherleys Lane onto Grovefield Way.

Once complete, the Aldi and Costa are expected to create around 60 jobs.

The wider project will also see the 8,034sq m of office space and parking for 376 vehicles and 106 bicycles in a second phase of the scheme.
