Pharmacy and deli plan for old Oleander Cycles building
A former cycle livery in Southampton could be changed into a pharmacy with a deli, according to a planning application submitted this week.
The proposal from the Bermuda Pharmacy Group, which operates the Par la Ville Pharmacy and two other pharmacies, would create the Port Royal Pharmacy in a building on Middle Road that once housed an Oleander Cycles livery.
The change would be made through an internal conversion with limited changes to the buildings structure such as the removal of several windows and a rolling shutter.
A covered entrance would be created with signage, along with several additional parking spaces.
The rear half of the building, which had been used to store rental cycles, would be modified into a pharmacy with a dispensary and storage space.
Meanwhile the former showroom would be changed into a store with a small kitchen for an on-site take-out deli.
A basement in the building would offer additional storage.
A similar proposal to create a bulk goods shop and take-out deli at the site was approved by the Department of Planning in 2013, but the project never came to fruition.
