Developers ‘delighted’ to have ‘been in talks’ with Iceland for Amersham return

Angle Property have announced they have been talking to a number of stores, including Iceland, to become future tenants of the space on Sycamore Road.

Developers behind controversial plans to replace a popular discount supermarket with a restaurant ‘have been in talks’ for a possible return of the retail chain to Sycamore Road, Amersham.

Following a 300 strong public meeting on Saturday (January 30), Angle Property announced they have been talking to Iceland supermarket despite the store’s closure in the town at the end of last year.

A number of other retailers, including Co-op, Morrisons, Loaf, Mountain Warehouse and restaurant chain Bill’s, could also become future tenants of the site on Sycamore Road if the proposals receive planning permission.

The public consultation day on Saturday was organised by Amersham Action Group and held at the Amersham Free Church.

Townspeople and stakeholders were invited to view and comment on the plans unveiled by Angle Property and representatives from the development team were also on hand to answer questions.

James Good, director, said: “Angle Property was keen to announce to the public that we have been speaking to a number of different retailers about taking space within the proposed scheme. Absolutely no decisions have been made, however, it is clear from public feedback that residents are keen to see a food retailer return to the new development and I am delighted to announce that we have been in talks with Iceland, Co-op and Morrisons. A number of other retailers including Loaf, Mountain Warehouse and restaurant chain Bill’s have all expressed interest in taking space within the development.

“The event was a great success, there was a good turnout and a great opportunity for us to meet with the residents, stakeholders and councillors and listen to their views. I want to thank all those who took the time to attend the exhibition and I hope that it proved informative.

“We are committed to working with local residents and councillors and we’re really pleased with the level of support received to date. We will continue to review all the feedback and look to incorporate this into our evolving plans where possible and appropriate.”
