The two-day exhibition in the Pump Rooms gave people a chance to see detailed proposals and meet members of the Tesco project team. Visitors were able to view the plans and many left feedback, which will be incorporated into the scheme where possible.
Tesco has submitted plans to Malvern Hills District Council to build a new store on the site, which would transform the disused former Cattle Market site and create new jobs for local people. The scheme would include parking for 102 cars and improved linkages to the River Teme.
Tony Fletcher, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: “We were delighted with the number of people that came to see the plans and talk with our project team. The feedback we received from residents in Tenbury Wells and the surrounding area has been invaluable.
“This exhibition gave local people the chance to see images and full details of the scheme for the first time and see how Tesco can work with local traders to improve the overall viability of the town centre.
“We are working closely with the council in order to provide all the necessary information and are hopeful that the application will be registered soon.”

“The plans we will be showcasing in the town next week (May 18th and May 19th) are from the original application submitted on April 30th, which has yet to be registered by Malvern Hills District Council.
“It is quite usual for a council to require further reports and information before registering and validating a planning application and we are working with the planning officers to ensure that they have all the necessary information to do so as soon as possible.”
Although the Orange and T-Mobile brands will remain on the high street, the firm said its new name reflected the ambition of the new business.
I would be interested to hear how mobile phone and mobile internet users in Tenbury find the service from each of the mobile companies.

Tenbury local people are to be given a chance to view and discuss the details for the proposed new Tesco store in the town with a public exhibition at The Pump Rooms on May 18th and 19th.
Tesco has submitted plans to build a new 15,000 sq ft store on the Cattle Market site, which will create up to 180 jobs for local people.
Shoppers and residents will be able to see detailed plans and leave comments at the two-day exhibition, as well as speaking to Tesco representatives who will be on hand to answer questions about the plans.
Tony Fletcher, corporate affairs manager at Tesco, said: “This is an opportunity for members of the public, and the local community, to speak to members of our planning team and give their feedback. The comments we receive from local people at this exhibition will then be incorporated into the scheme where possible.”
The proposed new store will be environmentally friendly incorporating a sustainable timber frame and glass structure, providing a modern, contemporary feel. It will include 94 car parking spaces and a host of energy saving features that will help to reduce the store’s carbon footprint and ensure maximum energy efficiency.
The public exhibition will be at The Pump Rooms from 10am – 6.30pm on Tuesday May 18th and from 9am – 4pm on Wednesday May 19th.
