TQ7966 : Development Site near Tesco

taken 8 years ago, near to Gillingham, Medway, Great Britain

Development Site near Tesco
Development Site near Tesco
A large empty factory (Crest Packaging) has been knocked down on Courteney Road. It has often been rumoured that this would be part of a new superstore Tesco's. Big enough to sell cars! Unsure about that, but something is clearly happening now. The current Tesco store is to the left of the site.

Rumour confirmed now, and planning permission approved. (Update Sept 2010).
Gillingham Tesco
This store is Courteney Road, near the large roundabout on the A2 with the A274. It is on a former Bowaters (paper manufacturers) site. See TQ7966 : Tesco water tower, for details about Bowaters.
It is currently undergoing renovation and extension. The store has been given the go-ahead to develop the adjacent former Crest Packaging site, in Courtney Road, to provide an additional 2,500 square metres of retail and storage space. It will also move its petrol station and increase parking space for a further 183 cars. In return it must fund the cost of changes to the Bowater roundabout, which gives access to its site, and give 24,000 towards improved bus services.
