A new supermarket could be heading to Bourne End after a licensing application was submitted for a unit in the centre of the village.
The Wycombe District Council licensing team received the request on Tuesday, June 7, from Co-operative Group Foods Limited.
The national chain is seeking permission to open a store at the new Blyton House retirement homes development by McCarthy and Stone, at the corner of Marlow Road and Oakfield Road, that would be allowed to sell alcohol between 7am and 11pm.
In March 2014, the council's planning department approved plans for 25 apartments and a retail unit at the site, as well as parking and a delivery lay-by, which is also next to the Parade, the village's main shopping street.
Sainsbury's had originally been due to move in, but confirmed it had pulled out of the project in January.
Consultations on the licensing application will be accepted until Tuesday, July 5.
