Plans to build a pharmacy inside a Flintshire supermarket are still going ahead Carl Sargeant AM has confirmed today. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Alyn and Deeside Assembly Member wrote to Morrisons headquarters last month, after residents in Saltney raised concerns about a lack of opening date for a new pharmacy inside its Saltney store. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The application by the supermarket chain was given the green light in January, after thousands of residents signed a petition in support of the bid. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl received a reply this week from Ewan Macdonald-Russell, corporate affairs advisor for Wales and Scotland, who confirmed the project is still going ahead. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Carl said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“I am sure this news will come as a relief to residents, many of whom were concerned the plan had been abandoned. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Morrisons have told me they are taking steps to move the plan forward and although they do not have a target date for opening yet, they will keep residents informed. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“They have also thanked residents for the support in helping them gain permission to open the new facility, which I am sure will be well-used when it opens.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
