Teignbridge is set to get two new Greggs stores. Plans for a new Greggs in Newton Abbot are being backed for approval when the council meets next week, while a planning application for a new store in Teignmouth has been approved.
Two planning applications by Greggs Plc have been submitted to Teignbridge Council in respect of a building in Market Walk, Newton Abbot.
One application is for new signage and for new air conditioning condensers and extract grilles and the other is for a new sign, one new projecting sign and two internal posters for 3 Market Walk.
Teignbridge Council’s planning committee is being recommended to approve the plans when they meet next Tuesday. The application has to go before the committee as the site includes land owned by the council as part of the Market Walk shopping centre.
