General Stores edges closer

North Somerset Council has submitted the first stage of the business case to deliver the General Stores project in the heart of Weston town centre by March 2022.

General Stores is part of North Somerset Council’s ambitions to transform the Sovereign Centre. The project will consist of space for people to work, learn, collaborate and enjoy themselves. The space will support business and workers who want to stay in town to improve their productivity, stay close to home and access fresh air and local landscapes.

Combined with regular train services for occasional commuting and the recently announced plans for full fibre technology, Weston is perfectly positioned for distributed working models.

Detailed design work is now underway and the first phase should be open by the end of March 2022, with more plans in pipeline.
