Robinson's supermarket plans go on display in Ulverston
Last updated at 12:11, Friday, 09 November 2012
RESIDENTS have been getting their first glimpses of how a new town centre supermarket could look in Ulverston.
Revised designs went on display at the Coronation Hall today for a 20,000 sq ft store with 90 underground car parking spaces.
Other features of the proposals include revamping Brewery Street and Buxton Place car parks, refurbishing the Union Inn pub and converting the Bird in Hand pub for retail use.
The plans keep the majority of the current frontage along Brewery Street and include an underground walkway from the Brewery Street car park to the new store.
It is claimed the proposals would create 110 full-time jobs. The plans will remain on display until 6.30pm today.

Have your say
I went to see the plans and they looked good. The area will be smartened up which is a good thing. Not everyone finds it possible to go to Booths or out of town shopping so let's have something in town. Especially now Sainsburys have been turned down.
I really think that ulverston would be better off having a town centre supermarket so people can get their main shopping there then walk over the road to use the local shops. This won't happen if you push the supermarket to the outskirts of the town. You will loose any trade you might of had.
