Tesco Plans Put On Hold

Proposals for a new store in Manningtree have been put on hold.

Councillors were expected to back plans for a new supermarket last night (Wednesday 30th March), however they have deferred that decision.

Instead they want an independent traffic assessment.

The impact increased traffic would have on the area has always been one of the main concerns of building the store.

There are also fears local shops would be forced to close if the supermarket was given the go-ahead.

Campaigners have been fighting plans for 3 years.

A previous application was refused on the grounds of increased traffic, a poor design, and fears shops would be forced to close due to a lack of trade.
