Tesco has said it remains committed to converting a former pub and hotel in Barnham into a supermarket, and expects to have it open within the next six to 12 months.

The supermarket giant has planning permission to convert the former Barnham Bridge Inn into a Tesco Express store.

A Tesco spokesman told the Observer: “We’re delighted to have secured a consent for the site at Barnham and look forward to opening the new store and bringing customers the best we have to offer.

“We’ll keep the local community updated with progress.”

The former hotel, opposite the railway station, has been boarded up since August 2014 and a number of residents and parish councillors have questioned why the project has suffered repeated delays.
