Paragon submits plans for Northants Co-op

Paragon Property Developments has submitted a planning application to East Northamptonshire Council for the development of the formerExpress Works site at Church Street, Irthlingborough.
Paragon has also submitted plans for smaller a retail unit and 20 affordable houses.

The supermarket will be operated by Central England Co-operative, whilst the housing will be a mixture of 2- and 3-bedroomed homes.

Paragon’s development director, Ben Sheppard, said: “The Express Works site has been derelict for many years and is a real eyesore in the centre of the town. We believe that our proposals will bring the site back to life and revitalise the town centre for local residents and visitors alike. The new supermarket will be a major boost to the town; it will encourage people to shop in Irthlingborough and be a major boost to other retail and associated businesses within the town, as if people no longer have to travel elsewhere to carry out their food shopping they are also more likely to use other businesses within the centre for the purchase of other goods and services.

Paul Shepherd, acquisitions manager at Central England Co-operative, said: “We are very excited to be opening a brand new supermarket which will provide 7,000 square feet of shopping space to the local area. We take pride in being a community retailer, and the new store will create new jobs in the locale, as well as offering benefits like a wide range of products and services, membership and community dividend to local community groups.”
