Plans for new Sainsbury’s Local in Edwalton

Plans have been submitted for signage at the site in Edwalton which has been approved for retail use since November 2023.

The store will be situated on Rose Way next to the Porsche dealership if looking from Melton Road.

The site is located on land fronting Rose Way, at an approved local retail unit.

Planning permission for a retirement home has also been approved.

The 2.2-acre site will feature a single-storey convenience store, plus a three-storey retirement apartment scheme providing a range of one and two-bedroom apartments.

Charterpoint has now completed the deal to sell part of the site to Anchor, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people in later life.

Charterpoint will develop the remainder of the site for the Sainsbury’s Local store. 

Drawings suggest two electric vehicle points and car parking for around 20 vehicles are proposed.

An ATM and Argos collect are also in the plans. No fuel station will be at the site.


Charterpoint CEO Adrian Goose said: “We are very pleased to have received reserved matters planning consent for this key plot in Edwalton and to have subsequently sold part of the site to Anchor.

“The area around the site has grown considerably in recent years, with new housing, retail and commercial developments.

“Our plan for the site on the corner of Rose Way and Melton Road will bring a new convenience store [ this Sainsbury’s Local ] to the neighbourhood. It will also provide much-needed affordable retirement apartments for the community, operated by Anchor, which will help to free up larger family homes in Edwalton, West Bridgford and the wider area.”

Patrick Duffy, Anchor’s Director of New Business, said: “We are delighted to have acquired this site from Charterpoint. This is a key new development for us to work in partnership with Rushcliffe Borough Council to provide affordable homes for older people locally. We look forward to working with Charterpoint to deliver the wider scheme for the local community.” 


Anchor has a strong development programme and currently has 121 care homes in its portfolio.
