A planning application for a new 17,100 sq ft M&S Foodhall at Riverside Retail Park was approved this morning at Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Councils planning committee.
Last year a spokesperson for Riverside Retail Park said,
“This will be a significant investment in Coleraine of £2.5 million - creating 40 jobs during the construction phase and supporting a further 70 full time and part time jobs when the store is opened and operational.
“Given the economic uncertainty caused by Covid-19 and by Brexit we believe this investment represents a real vote of confidence in Coleraine.”
The application was deferred earlier this year after a late objection was submitted by Andy Stephens from Bangor-based Matrix Planning Consultancy on behalf of Retail NI.
