The Town Council had two residents speak at the meeting on Monday 5th October 2015 on the subject of Morrison’s Store.
All members have been fully updated with the information available at the current time regarding the possible re-letting of the premise. As Mayor and Chair of the Town Council I am fully abreast of all possible developments and will report on these in a timely manner.
The Town Centre Manager has spoken with Sedgemoor’s Economic Development officer, the Chamber of Trade, a representative of the MP’s office to discuss this matter, and has also spoken to representatives of the owner of the freehold of the building and the store manager.
It is our understanding that a decision will not be made until the end of October, and until that time the Town Centre Manager will continue to work with all other parties and report back to the Town Council.
Chairman of Council
