Mill Street Development go-ahead confirmed

THIS week, Ceredigion County Council has confirmed the development agreement between the Council, Tesco and Chelverton Deeley Freed has been rendered unconditional.

Mill StreetWith the go-ahead confirmed, work will shortly commence on the Mill Street car park development to include Tesco and Marks & Spencer stores along with a 550-space car park.

The development is slated to bring significant benefits to Aberystwyth and north Ceredigion, including the creation of 290 full-time equivalent jobs.

Due to the development, part of the Mill Street car park will close on Thursday, 16th October 2014. There will be around 100 short term car parking spaces available at Mill Street until Friday 31st October 2014. Long stay parking spaces will be available at Maesyrafon car park, Park Avenue (adjacent to Aberystwyth Town Football Club).

No weekly tickets should be purchased for use in the car park after the 9th October 2014. Holders of Aberystwyth car park season tickets are afforded use of the other long stay pay and display car parks operated by Ceredigion County Council in Aberystwyth. As of Monday 3rd November 2014, 170 car parking spaces are scheduled to be available at the former Brewery Site, Trefechan.  This temporary car parking solution will be available for the duration of the Mill Street development construction period.

It is anticipated that the new 550 space car park at Mill Street will be available from summer 2016, when the Tesco store is scheduled to open for trade. The M&S store is likely to be open to trade in mid-autumn 2016.
