8:00am Sunday 25th March 2012

WHATEVER one may feel about the Tesco decision, which I assume is irreversible, it is now time to move on. For me the question becomes: how can we best turn the presence of Tesco to our advantage?

Norman Wanstall of Boraston Drive, Burford, asks do public really have proper say?

I, LIKE the majority who attended the planning meeting at Tenbury High School do not want Tesco’s in Tenbury, and I do not agree with Tenbury Town Council, but I concede that its case was presented in a coherent and ordered manner. Councillor Penn who likewise spoke in support also did so with confidence.

Norman Wanstall asks how can Tenbury accommodate a Tesco store?

3:25pm Friday 24th February 2012

CONCERNING the Tesco planning application, I can well understand why the Advertiser’s editor challenged Dawn Worgan’s statement that “The town council has not at any time recommended this planning application for refusal.” Those of us who sat in on the council meeting in the Autumn know only too well that the decision was taken to reject the proposal, and when I wrote in the Advertiser about the council’s astonishing U-turn a couple of weeks later, Dawn made no attempt to justify it. One can only assume from her letter that when the proposal was rejected a recommendation was not made to the district council, whereas when the proposal was approved the district council was informed. Perhaps Dawn would like to explain the reason for this.

We're not being heard on Tesco plan

2:09pm Wednesday 25th January 2012

MAY I advise all those who are vehemently opposed to the proposed Tesco development, never to attend any future meetings of the Tenbury Town Council. In spite of the fact that members once voted overwhelmingly against the scheme, they now treat the whole development as a fait accompli – a done deal. It’s a case of: “Welcome Tesco, and all who sail in her.”

7:00am Thursday 19th January 2012

I AM one of many supporting the application for a Tesco Store to be built on the former Cattle Market because I believe it is the only realistic prospect for the near future to improve the eyesore of the former cattle market. I also believe it will bring more shoppers into the town. The damage caused to small towns by supermarkets was because they were built out of town.

7:00am Thursday 6th October 2011

FROM a distance, it's difficult to see why Tenbury Wells needs a Tesco. The town and area has got bigger but to save time and energy, it's more relevant to have a railway station, eg reinstatement of the old Wooferton site as Tenbury Parkway with a dedicated bus link to the Tenbury area.

H Roberts wants Tesco and a bridge for Tenbury Wells

8:00am Monday 15th August 2011

TESCO or a bridge? Why not both? I have great admiration for the intentions of the Plan B group but as M Lloyd notes using the site for small sales points however attractive is simply not economically viable. Similar ventures in various towns have struggled to find and keep tenants long before the current climate. Tesco is the only organisation at the moment with both means and interest in the site, and I suspect it is only a matter of time – and remember not all in the town are against them.

IWAS amused, or maybe dismayed, at the latest idea in the Advertiser – “Buy shares in site”, suggested by Tenbury Futures. Talk about clutching at straws. The latest population for Tenbury was recorded as being 2,300. The survey conducted by Tenbury Futures stated 300 people participated in their survey, so what about the voices of the other 2,000?
