NNDC sell out to Tesco

At the Cabinet meeting on Tuesday the members agreed to Tescos proposal to buyout their contractual requirement to replace the housing lost if their store gets planning approval. This means that the council will receive a payment (yet to be agreed) towards replacement housing instead of actually getting the housing built for them by Tesco. This leaves Tesco free to push their store plans forward without having to worry about this condition, and it also leaves the council with the risks associated with finding land and building suitable replacement homes.

Tesco win again.
