New convenience store to open on Highbridge's Morland estate

A new convenience store is to open on a housing estate in Highbridge.

Sedgemoor District Council has announced the completion of a new 10-year lease for 20-24 Morland Road.

The shop unit, pictured, has been unoccupied for 12 months after previously trading as the Highbridge Furniture Store.

The new tenant, Mr K Parameswaran, will be opening a new shop called Highbridge Convenience Store under the Best One convenience franchise.

"After a major refurbishment the new shop is due to open for trading around the 15th August," council spokeswoman Claire Faun told

"The new venture is great news for the residents of the Morland Estate who will have a handily available convenience store on the estate for the first time in three years."

"Since the initial enquiry some two months ago the Council has worked hard to turn around a tentative enquiry to a completed lease in just over eight weeks. We wish Mr Parameswaran good luck in this business venture," she added.
