Sophie Akokhia, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: “We have had some positive support so far from local shoppers and traders in the town but this is a complicated scheme with lots of individual aspects to be considered. While both the conservation area and planning applications were progressing well and discussions with third parties were ongoing, it became apparent that we would be unable to resolve all the complex issues associated with the site within the council’s administrative deadlines.
“As a result we have regrettably withdrawn the planning application to enable further consultation to take place, with a view to resubmission in the near future.”
This blog is an eclectic collection of my thoughts and concerns. Some subjects are brought to my attention by others who feel this blog is a good conduit for communication. I am a volunteer for a number of local organisations, but I do NOT write on their behalf. I do not pretend to talk on behalf of any organisation or the community. There are people who share some of my views, and others that do not. If you do not like what you read here, find another blog to read, or better still write your own.
"I am not a sheep, I have my own mind. I am fed up with being told what and how to think? Whilst we are still allowed the remnants of free speech, I will speak out."
I think I agree with that.
This Blog is my snapshot of what is happening locally.
Whether you view me as an activist, a mischief maker, a nutter, an irritant, or a recorder of social history probably depends on your position and point of view.
