WORK has started on the former Somerfield store in Lowestoft.

Scaffolding has gone up outside the building in London Road North as work commences on the clothes shop chain Peacocks.

The new store will occupy around a third of the former supermarket site and it is anticipated that Peacocks will open at the end of June.

With two other units still available on the Somerfield site, a spokesman for Waveney District Council yesterday revealed that no additional planning applications had been lodged as yet.

“The only application we've had is for Peacocks,” the council spokesman said.

However, it is believed that Wilkinson and Starbucks have expressed an interest in moving into the town.
