A NEW Sainsbury’s supermarket in Waterlooville is set to open by spring next year, it has been announced.

The company has already been granted planning permission for the superstore in Hambledon Road, but recently submitted a revised planning application with some minor changes.

A council report states: ‘Construction work is likely to start this summer and the store should be open by spring 2014. Economic development staff will be working with the Jobcentre to ensure workless local residents will be given pre-employment training and guaranteed interviews for the 200 posts that are likely to be created.’
