I am glad that Tesco has got permission for a bigger, better store.
Yes, a few of the smaller local shops might suffer in the long term, but on the whole, I’m sure the town will survive.
The empty properties should go back to being dwellings as in days gone by.
The town must have loads of empty places that can be made into nice affordable homes.
In the past, only the rich lived in the towns and cities, and the less well off lived in the country; now it is the other way round.
I look forward to the new shop being ready for all.
