Asda applies for planning permission

ASDA has submitted two planning applications in relation to Morecambe’s Netto store opposite County Garage.

The planning applications are for the erection of a refrigeration plant and enclosure and installation of a cash machine, and replacement of all Netto’s signs with Asda signs.

Asda, owned by Wal-Mart, took over Netto’s UK outlets in a £778 million deal earlier this year.

It is not known exactly when the new Asda store in Morecambe will be opening.
