D-day for Tesco plans to transform 'bombed out Beirut' in Dartford
REVISED plans by Tesco to build a superstore, homes and a car park on a run-down street in Dartford town centre will be ruled on next week.
The supermarket giant had a proposal for Lowfield Street, likened by one shopkeeper to a “bombed out Beirut”, approved by Dartford Council last year.
But Tesco changed its mind and chose to revise its strategy more suited to online and home delivery which was submitted on July 8.
On Thursday (September 8) the council’s development control board will decide whether to approve the plans for 8,000 sqm of retail floor space and 107 new homes.
These include 34 one-bed flats and 73 two-bed flats. Of these 15 will be affordable homes.
In addition, 410 car parking spaces are to be built for shoppers and residents.
The meeting at the Dartford Civic Centre starts at 7pm.
