Construction of the long-awaited Asda in Selsey is to begin early next month, it has been announced today.
The new food store will be located on the Park Farm site on the Chichester Road, north of Selsey town centre, and is expected to open its doors next spring.
Paul Hanson, property director of Landlink Estates, said: “We are excited that this long-awaited project is about to begin.
“Selsey has long been under-served when it comes to supermarket shopping, with residents having to travel to Chichester.
“This new Asda will offer customers a superb range and bring jobs to the area.
“This project is part of changing Selsey’s prospects for the better.”
The £3.7 million project is being led by local property developer Landlink Estates, part of the West Sussex-based Langmead Group.
Mr Hanson added: “This is a major project for Landlink Estates and kicks off a programme of development schemes such as the Salt Box in Bognor Regis, which will create employment for local people with a business development of new factories and offices.
“We are pleased to be making a positive contribution to the local economy in West Sussex.”
Construction will get underway at the same time on a restaurant or cafe and a four-pump petrol station on the site, both also opening in the spring.
