MALVERN Hills planners are to be congratulated for the work they carried out resulting in the passing of the application by Tesco for a new store in Tenbury. It is clear the people of Tenbury will benefit from a store that has been designed especially for the Town.

C R Lewis of Teme Street, Tenbury, questions the performance and actions of coun Grove re Tesco in Tenbury
8:00am Friday 23rd March 2012
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.

MG LLOYD'S case for a Tesco store in Tenbury in the February 23, issue of the Tenbury Wells Advertiser is based upon a fundamental delusion: namely, that it will bring new business into the rest of Tenbury's High Street.

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.

I AM aware that I am a very small fish in a large pond, but I am confident I speak for a very high proportion of people in this area when I say Tenbury Wells desperately needs a supermarket of size and substance to come to the town.

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.”

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.

ADRIAN Kibbler, in his article Reasons to be Cheerful – Advertiser December 15 – says that once the Tesco decision has been taken "one way or the other....it will be time to let wounds heal and for the town to pull together ".

I NOTE from Anthony Penn's letter concerning the proposed Tesco development (Advertiser, September 15) that the planning committee has to rely on the county highway authority for advice on the possibility of traffic congestion.

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.

Tesco will develop this eyesore site Norman Wanstall writing from his home in Burford (Advertiser letters, September 1), can have no influence concerning the decision to allow Tesco's to build a store on the former cattle market.

I REFER to Norman Wanstall’s letter in the Tenbury Advertiser dated September 1 voicing his concerns with regard to traffic congestion if planning permission is granted for a supermarket on the old auction yard site.

As a trader I have nothing to fear IAM a specialist shopkeeper in Tenbury Wells, one of the many apparently whose opinions were not canvassed about the Tesco application and its impact on local retail business.

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?
