The site will also have five small retail units, 16 flats above the retail units as well as car parking. The pub proposed is a Marstons who specialise in family meals.

The draft layout for the site also identifies the potential future location of a new doctors surgery which is t be the subject of a future planning application.  A community consultation event detailing the plan including elevations and detailed designs was revealed at a consultation event at Assembly Hall on Wednesday 4th December.
