Notcutts Garden Centres plans Bagshot redevelopment with Waitrose

Notcutts and Waitrose have launched a website which explains their plans for the re-development of the existing Notcutts Garden Centre in Bagshot in Surrey.

The pair are seeking views on their proposals before submitting a planning application to Surrey Heath District Council  this spring.

The supermarket chain and garden centre group are planning to re-develop the existing garden centre site to provide a new Notcutts garden store alongside a new Waitrose food store.

Waitrose will be creating up to 160 jobs and the new Notcutts store will employ a similar number of people as at present, which is 45.

A public exhibition of the plans will be held on 9-10 February 2013.

Garden & Leisure is also working with Waitrose to redevelop its Shrewsbury garden centre in a similar way and plans have received the go-ahead.

Garden Centre Group is also looking to the supermarket to redevelop at Northampton.

Notcutts chief executive Andy King said he wanted to grow the 19-centre chain to 30 centres in an interview with Horticulture Week last November.
