Tesco re-submits plans for store extension in Dunmow

TESCO has re-submitted plans to extend its Dunmow store.

The supermarket giant first submitted plans for the extension in 2006 to “respond to the popularity of the store as well as bring more choice to the local shopping public”. With the three year limit to complete the work having passed, the firm has re-submitted to planning authority Uttlesford District Council.

The proposal is for an extra 1,617 sq m of floor space with the existing boundaries of the site. Of this, 1,242 sq m will be assessable to the public with the remaining 424 sq m being used for storage.

The extension to the southern and northern sides of the building will remove car parking and a service yard.

The original application in 2006 had almost �400,000 of section 106 agreements towards improving cycle paths and bus infrastructure but it could be subject to a deed of variation.
