Iceland comes to Port Talbot

December 5, 2017

Proposals for a new supermarket in Baglan, Port Talbot, which could create about 25 jobs in the area, are recommended for approval when the go before councillors tomorrow (21 November 2017).

The proposed unit will be occupied by an Iceland Food Warehouse store, selling chilled, frozen, fresh and pre-packaged grocery goods, along with alcoholic drinks.

An application from Bejam Group Ltd, supported by agent DPP Planning, for a site at the junction of Christchurch Road and Aberavon Road.

A Morrisons supermarket is located to the north of the site and a Copper Penny pub and restaurant to the west. A Lidl food store is also located nearby.

The new unit would measure 14,500 sq ft with a net internal sales area of 11,300 sq ft. Provision for 83 car parking spaces is also included.

It has been estimated that the new supermarket will create about 25 full- and part-time jobs, with the applicant confirming that these will be recruited from the area.

The application will be discussed at a meeting of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council's planning committee on 21 November.

It is recommended for approval in a planning officer's report prepared for the meeting, subject to the signing of a Section 106 agreement to secure a commitment from Iceland to retain its existing store in Port Talbot town centre until June 2023.  

The report said: "This proposal would introduce a major retailer into the area which would create additional local employment opportunities, broadening the economic base in Port Talbot.

"While this in itself would not 'tip the balance', when considered as a whole particular regard should be given to the conclusions that , with the controls in place to secure the future of the existing town centre Iceland store until at least 2023, the impact on the town centre and other centres in the retail hierarchy would be limited."
