THE PROJECT > RETAIL & LEISURE
Q1 will include retail and leisure units that will provide new options for food shopping and eating out locally.
The retail units are likely to house a food store / supermarket. There could also be a hotel, as well as ‘family style’ restaurants and fast food outlets. We have interest in these units from a number of operators, with whom we are holding on-going discussions.
Q1 will generate up to 460 full time equivalent jobs in retail, sport, leisure and hospitality.On top of this, during the construction phase, it is likely that up to 610 temporary construction jobs will be created over the life of the project.
We will work with the local job centre and other agencies to try to attract as many local people as possible for the jobs created by Q1.
Many of the jobs created will be from the occupiers of the retail and leisure units and we will encourage them to adopt a similar approach.
