Havant Tesco's

We got some bad news this week when it was announced that local authority planners had given the go ahead for Tescos to replace its existing Havant store with a much larger one. Many people have written to the council to complain about the move, far more than those in favour.

A consultancy was even employed by the council to investigate the plan and even they suggested it was a bad idea. Yet the planners gave it the all clear! One wonders whether any of them really care about the environment or long established businesses in the area.

Elected councillors will be voting this Thursday to make a final decision. I hope they make the correct decision and reject the plan, this would be a major change for development trends and would give a refreshing sign to the community.
