Taylor Wimpey now marketing flats above shop parade

Shops and flats on East Wichel Way.
Mock-up of shops and flats to be built on East Wichel Way.
East Wichel residents have long awaited a local shop. Talk of opening a convenience store at 34 Trevello Road has so far come to nothing. So it is a promising sign that Taylor Wimpey are now marketing the flats that will be built above the main retail parade on East Wichel Way. If they’re selling flats on the upper floors then there must be at least the shell of a shop completed on the ground floor. However, although the shops are being built, when they might be occupied remains unknown. The planning permission allows for a range of uses on the ground floor, including shops, offices, cafes or takeaways.
