Signs for new Castle Cary store revealed in planning application

PLANS have been submitted for signs at a new convenience store in Castle Cary.

Pegasus Group, on behalf of Co-Operative Group Food Ltd, has submitted plans for signage at the former Horse Pond Inn, at The Triangle.

Plans to change the use of the listed premises from a pub into a shop, with a residential unit, were approved in 2021.

Now, an application for new signs has been submitted – including three externally-illuminated signs, two non-illuminated signs, one hanging sign and one sign in the rear car park.

The application said the signage would “enhance the overall presentation and appearance of the street-fronting elements of the building”.

“It is the Co-op’s intention to trade from the ground-floor retail unit and as such, is applying for consent to display advertisements accordingly,” it said.

    Nice to see this building being renovated, and put to good use, especially using the car park at the rear, Cary always has a good retail shops and services
