Lidl store plans, M&S eyes up former store and Firepool developments - boom-time Taunton?

The current Lidl store Off Wood Street, Taunton.

The derelict TYCC site where Lidl could build a new store.

The former Comet store which M&S has looked at.

The derelict Firepool site.

TAUNTON’S economy is set to boom with Marks &Spencer considering opening a food hall, Lidl moving to a bigger, purpose-built store and potentially a riverside retirement home.

A major supermarket and several national businesses are also interested in setting up in Firepool.

Developments could include:

  • an M&S food hall in the former Comet store at Hankridge Way, beside the M5;
  • a new Lidl supermarket on the derelict Taunton Youth and Community site in Castle Street;
  • a retirement home on the site of the existing Lidl store off Wood Street;
  • The Range – as reported recently in the County Gazette and somersetcountygazette.co.uk/news - is taking over the Homebase’s Hankridge store.

An M&S spokeswoman confirmed the company had looked round Comet, which closed in 2012 when the electrical retailer went into administration.

The spokeswoman, who said there are no plans to close M&S’s East Street store, added: “We’re always looking at new sites for stores to ensure we have a relevant local offer and are considering the Hankridge Way development to enhance our customer offering in the Taunton area.

“We hope to be able to provide further information later in the year.”

Meanwhile, Lidl is buying the former TYCC site from owners Taunton Deane and Somerset County Councils, a couple hundred yards from its riverside outlet off Wood Street.

It wants to build a bigger store on competitor Tesco’s doorstep – see the proposals at a public consultation at St James Church Hall from 10am to 5pm on Friday, July 11.

TYCC closed in 2000 and was demolished three years later following an arson attack.

Lidl, which has another store in the town in Roman Road, declined to comment.

Taunton Deane leader Cllr John Williams said M&S had made informal approaches about setting up at Hankridge, although the authority had not heard anything recently.

Referring to the Lidl proposals, he said: “It’s an employment opportunity and makes use of derelict land.

“We had approaches from a potential retirement home owner and we’ve put them in touch with Lidl – that would be a suitable use subject to planning approval.

“It’s great for Taunton’s economy.”

Mr Williams said he is optimistic about the future of Firepool, which has been derelict for years, with several national businesses showing “definite interest”.

He added: “We’re aware of criticism that it’s been derelict for a long time, but the Northern Inner Distributor Road – (currently under construction) – will open up access to the site.

“It’s a huge step forward and people are now taking Firepool seriously, including a major national supermarket and national retailers.”

Mr Williams said the economy would be boosted by proposed developments at Taunton Station, with the main entrance relocated to the south side, passenger facilities, a multi-storey car park, public transport interchange, homes and shops.

And work should start on 49 homes in Firepool in the autumn, while a planning application for 92 more homes has been submitted.

Taunton's got too many of the same shops in different areas. YAY more supermarkets, more supermarkets the better, bring on the supermarkets.

I said all along that firepool would just end up with another Supermarket on it. Lol.

Maybe its time the people with these grand visions for Taunton step aside and let some talented people with real ideas/vision and experience of making it happen take over.

They do realise that there are other businesses out there that need land to create jobs and a healthy economy for Taunton other than Supermarkets?

Lidil would be a good supermarket for firepool as apart from the new upmarket apartments its a social housing zone that would suit a lidil.

M&S foodhall have supposed to have been taking the old comet store for over a year. I spoke to a furniture retailer over a year ago who told me this as he wanted the old comet store and was rejected by the owners as they only want big chains in their stores. and said M&S foodhall was going in there.

I think it would be great to have a bigger Lidl with a bigger car park. The one at the moment is ok, but when you need to park to do your shopping, most of the people using the car park wander off into town. It would also be good for them to stay this side of town, as most of the others are across the other side. Oh and more parent and child spaces would be a bonus

Because it's been so inaccessible thus far, has it? Is that really the excuse they're going with for perpetuating such an eyesore for so long? Totally agree with the comments about excessive supermarkets, it's ridiculous.

Too many supermarkets? How about being great for consumer choice? It is a little strange that Sainsburys and Lidls have 2 stores and there is no Waitrose or Aldi.

Maybe Tesco should move to Firepool and build an Extra, Aldi or Waitrose can move in to either the current Tesco or town Sainsburys.

A BM Bargains/home store would also be good for Taunton.

Supermarket price-fixing scandal

"WE REQUIRE you to work Christmas Day and Boxing Day this year. Other companies are doing it and we have to compete with them". "We need to extend our opening hours and your working hours to keep up with our competitors."

"We require your work patterns to be more 'flexible' because of the competitive business environment we operate in." "We regret to inform you that the final-salary pension scheme will no longer operate, to maintain our competitive advantage."

Or so workers are told everyday by the supermarket we work for. But it seems 'competition' may not be the unstoppable force our bosses make it out to be. The big four supermarkets – Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons – and the big dairies supplying them have all been caught fixing the price of basic dairy goods like milk and cheese between them.

Seven years ago, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) estimated that consumers had been ripped off to the tune of £270 million. So, rather than being at the mercy of competitive pressures, the 'big four' seem quite capable of co-operating to protect their profits.

This just shows the supermarket industry bosses' hypocrisy and greed. The bosses trumpet 'competition', using it as an excuse when attacking their workers. But the same bosses flout 'competition' to make a few extra million by price fixing. In either case it is clear that what is operating is not some mystical 'competitive force' but the naked greed of big business. 'Competition' is just the latest word in their vocabulary of excuses.

All this shows the hollowness of 'competition' when monopoly capitalism dominates. The OFT cries foul at these 'uncompetitive practices', but what sort of genuine competition exists when the entire food (and distribution) market is dominated by a few big players, who use their economic muscle to dictate what goes on in the economy and all our lives? Not that much as this price-fixing scam proves!

Why can't the supermarket bosses compete to provide their workers with the best pay and the best pension schemes instead of the worst?

Why can't they collude to offer consumers lower prices?

That would require taking them out of the greedy hands of big business and nationalising them under democratic workers' control and management.

Welcome to the New World Order people. A place where nothing matters except money. The corporate takeover is now so in your face that it's impossible to ignore. The anecdote about the furniture company being told they only want big corporates on their land in the comments section just about says it all. As for John Williams, this man has presided over the decimation of the town for too long and should be shown the door asap. It's time for people to say no to this crap. Very, very sad indeed. However, the people of Taunton love all this stuff, so you get what you wish for, I suppose. Taunton was an ok place up to around 20 years ago. TYCC should have remained in place too. I remember John, Maggie, Pauline and many others providing some fantastic times for young people in this town. Nowadays there is nothing. Just a load of cameras, riot vans and big chain stores. What a dump Taunton has become. Typical Gazette write up too, selling it on the jobs and financial side of things.....same tactic they use to sell Hinkley Point. Disgraceful.

With respect, Tesco and Lidl are not and will not serve the people coming in from Bishops Lydeard and Norton Fitzwarren. There was a Normans store which is now housing. Maybe a new site could be found for a supermarket around there?

Taunton has no cultural dimension beyond binge drinking, shopping in tenth rate outlets and sport. The town has become uglier and drearier by the year, strangled by traffic in a system that only the most inept of planners could contrive and blighted by an ever increasing population of itinerant drug addicts, the socially inadequate or merely addled.
I suppose, therefore, another supermarket was to be expected. Wouldn't be so bad if it were a Waitrose but I should imagine the company didn't wish to tarnish its image and be associated with such a ghastly place as Taunton.
The river in most like communities elsewhere in Britain would be a feature. Here it is simply a challenge to clueless traffic consultants and has had all the development that only a soviet bloc planner in the 1950s could have conceived.
Given its setting it has taken a special talent to have constructed such ugliness as modern Taunton. One could be forgiven for concluding its architects trained under those responsible for Slough or Croydon.

As someone who knows both Taunton and Croydon well I find these remarks both ill-informed and offensive. Taunton and Croydon are completely different towns in their history, economics and architecture but both have their merits and I would be happy to live in either. I don’t agree that Taunton is becoming uglier and drearier by the year and think the opposite is true as a lot of work has gone in to brightening the place up. I grew up in Taunton and can remember what it was like in the 1960s and 1970s. I would like to see more culture with thriving theatres like they have in Croydon but Croydon has 5 times the population of Taunton. I also find the remarks about itinerant drug addict’s offensive. What exactly is this supposed to mean.
I now live in London and have visited many towns and cities in the UK and in other countries but still I get excited about my regular visits to Taunton. I still find it an extremely attractive and relaxed place to visit. My family enjoy coming too and my wife loves visiting some of the independent shops and some of the ones we don’t have at home. As is true of most towns in the UK there will be inevitable growth and things change. There is a lot more traffic on the road but people have a much better standard of living that they did in the 1960s. My father had a small shop in the town and we can remember when the first supermarket opened in Taunton. However, we cannot go back to the way things were and neither should we. Most people do their food shopping in supermarkets now and drive cars.
