Plans lodged in attempt to relieve traffic congestion at retail park
Plans have been lodged to create a second entry/exit point for shoppers at a Berwick retail park.
The application seeks permission to use the existing service road as a means of relieving traffic congestion at Tweedbank Retail Park in Tweedmouth.
There is currently only one entry/exit to the car park via Northumberland Road.
The plans show a proposed entry/exit close to the Poundland store.
Agents Workman, in the application, state: ‘The works involve the creation of a secondary entry/exit point to the existing car park of the retail park to resolve ongoing traffic congestion.
‘The newly created entry/exit is to be located off the existing service road which sits within the site boundary and will entail the removal of the existing soft landscaping and
construction of 50m2 of new road surfacing.
‘The proposed development does not involve any change of use to what is an existing road and car park nor will it increase traffic.’
It would result in the loss of four parking spaces.
