Aylsham Tesco gets agreement

Tesco looks to have won over the locals with the design of a planned store at Aylsham. New amended plans showing a low brick and pin-tile building off the Norwich Road have won the backing of town councillors. It comes four years after outline planning permission was given to a store on the site, original submitted by developers Wincote on behalf of un-named store operators. Since then a series of designs have prompted local objections - ranging from an “off the peg” standardised store, to another with Dutch gables, and a wood-clad version earlier this year tagged as “Disneyland”. Councillors called for a design and materials more in keeping with the architecture of the 12th century market town. The latest scheme satisfied those demands and drew no objections from town councillors, said town clerk Maureen Anderson-Dungar. A decision will be made by Broadland District Council's planning committee on Wednesday November 8.
