Braintree: Two thirds of readers say no to Tesco Express
9:00am Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Readers have given a proposed Tesco Express store the thumbs down.
In last week’s Times it was reported the supermarket chain wants to open a new shop at the site of the former Kings Head pub in Coggeshall Road, Braintree.
But residents have voiced their opposition to Tesco opening its fourth store in Braintree.
In a poll on the Times’ website, 65 per cent of readers have said they would not shop at the Tesco Express.
Norma Aird, who lives in nearby St Mary’s Road, has registered her opposition to the plans on Braintree Council’s website.
Ms Aird said: “I want to know why the council seems to think it is necessary to have another Tesco within Braintree - we already have three.
“The impact on traffic on Coggeshall Road will become more of a nightmare."
