Save our Sheringham - Say NO to Tesco

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

Tesco buy out more planning clauses.

Further to the news that Tesco wish to buyout their requirement to replace the homes lost if they were to build a store in Sheringham it appears this is a normal way for Tesco to behave as they have also tried to use their huge profits to renege on a planning obligation in Yorkshire.
Supermarket giant Tesco has applied to buy its way out of an agreement to provide a riverside footpath and cycleway alongside its Abbeydale store in a move approved by council planning officers. The company agreed to install a footpath alongside the River Sheaf when it was given planning permission for the development, but has now applied to the council to pay it £274,000 instead of going ahead with the work.
