Sainsbury’s launches Portishead site

A WEBSITE has been launched to let people know more about an application to build a new supermarket in Portishead.

Sainsburys has set up the site, which can be found at, to explain the progress of their planning applications to build a store off Serbert Way.

In November, the proposals for the store were given approval by North Somerset councillors.

However, The Co-Operative, which already has a supermarket in Portishead, launched a legal challenge asking for a judicial review into the decision.

Since then, Sainsburys has submitted a second planning application, which it hopes will be approved to allow work to start on site.
