A few things that you should know about the new store that is planned....sorry, going to be built for(?) Sleaford.
The existing store will not be left in a state for other supermarkets to use to provide competition to the New Tesco store, it will be turned into several small retail units.
The current petrol station will not be kept open to be able to compete with the new one at the new store, it will be closed due to an as of yet unspecified reason.
Tesco have given over £160'000 to aid a new "transport plan".....no doubt involving dropping off points at it's new store!.
Most worryingly the proposed footbridge planned to cross the rail crossing at the Southgate/Grantham Road junction was not even discussed with Sleaford's residents, it was simply decided to build one and then 4 designs where offered to Sleafordians for their approval!. Democracy in motion....almost!
Not wanting to sound like I think that Tesco have far to much influence in our "Market Town", but I have heard that even the welcome sign at it's boundary is to be changed to..........
"Sleaford, twinned with Tesco"
