The first phase of the ‘Monroe Corner’ complex is nearing completion, as contractors put the finishing touches to the main petrol station part of the development.

The petrol station will host a ‘Hursts’ grocery shop, a small Subway and a Costa Express.

The site was previously home to ‘Monroes’ and then ‘Approach’ garages.

Opening in the Autumn, McDonalds will sit to the right-hand side of the Petrol Station as you look forward at the development.

Topps Tiles and Majestic Wine will be occupying the units to the left-hand rear of the complex.

The unit with the curved roof is currently available to let, after Aztec Flooring was rumoured to have decided not to take over the premises.
