A GARAGE could be demolished to make way for a Co-op store if planning is approved.

Plans to build a Co-op store, flats and parking at the Brooklyn Garage site in Romsey Road, Nursling, have been unveiled.

The proposal outlines plans to move the existing Co-op store in Nursling Street to relocate to this “larger” and “more up-to-date” premises.

However, the application submitted to Test Valley Borough Council has raised concerns within the community.

One objection said: “This is the wrong development in the wrong place. We are not against redevelopment of the site but we do object to this proposal.

“We consider it be entirely out of keeping with the adjacent affected properties.

“There will also be increased noise from residential vehicle movements at all hours of the day and night. 

“We are also concerned about the volume of traffic generated by the convenience store.”

The residential element of the building will consist of one, one-bedroom flat and eight two-bedroom flats with a total of 13 parking spaces for residents.

A decision is set to be made next month.
