RESIDENTS are invited to have their say on proposals to open a new supermarket on a Dearne Valley chemicals site.
Asda is hosting a two-day exhibition to show its plans for a 40,000 sq ft store, with petrol station and car park on the Whyte Chemicals site on Denaby Lane in Denaby Main.
An Adsa spokesman said that Whyte Chemicals planned to “further their own progressive plans” by relocating their operation and a formal application would be submitted to Doncaster Council in the coming months.
Philip Bartram, Asda’s senior property communications manager, said: “This is a major proposal for Denaby Main and the wider area, and I really hope people come along to hear more about the scheme and let us know what they think.
“We have a long-standing interest in opening a new store in Denaby Main, and we’re delighted those plans are now formed enough for us to discuss them with the community.
“The store is on a prime site that will be fully regenerated and become fully productive again.
“Also, the new jobs have the potential to greatly improve hundreds of household budgets in the area.
“We look forward to speaking to many local people during the exhibition.”
If planning permission is granted, the development would replace the existing Asda store on Hill Top Road, Denaby.
Staff would be moved across to the new store but the supermarket giant said there would also be an increase in jobs overall.
The exhibition will take place at Denaby Main Institute Working Mens Club on Grange Way, from 2pm to 7pm on Thursday, May 9 and 10am to 4pm on Friday, May 10.
