Tesco wins appeal over new store

Tesco has won an appeal over a proposed new store in Padiham, Lancashire.

The supermarket giant had its initial application to build a 4,508sq.m store denied by Burnley Borough Council in March, but it has now won an appeal against that decision.

Tesco and Maple Grove Developments first submitted the proposals in October 2009, which include parking and recycling facilities, but they were turned down, against officer recommendation following opposition from local traders.

The council said the proposed supermarket would create retail impact and highway safety concerns.

“This decision is undoubtedly right. The new store will generate much needed jobs in Padiham and will improve the shopping provision in the town, on a site well linked to other town centre shops,” said John Francis, a partner in the Manchester office of DPP, who acted on behalf of Tesco.

“The application was made with full regard to current planning policy and we are delighted with the decision.”
