Ambitious plans to regenerate a former domestic landfill site in Teignmouth could mean new multi-million pound employment and leisure opportunities for the area.
Teignbridge District Council, which owns the land at Broadmeadow, has begun advertising for a development partner. Development plans will provide a new supermarket, help improve the quality of the area, create new jobs, and increase the provision of playing fields on the site.
As part of the scheme Teignbridge is looking to provide a new supermarket with 2000 sqm net sales area for the town. Also on the cards for Broadmeadow is additional industrial work space to attract new businesses to the area and enable others to expand, improved car parking for users of the estate, a new access road, and importantly a scheme to clean and restore contaminated land at Broadmeadow, bringing some of the existing playing fields back in to use.
