I asked about this at the checkout last time I was in. The girl on the till said there is a slight delay due to Bats. Once the Bat issue has been sorted, things will get going.

Has anyone else heard about this? I'm presuming the Bats are in the building next door?

The statutory notices posted in the market place tell us that Tesco's building is to be demolished, even though it is supposed to be a conservation area! Is this a knock on effect to the flats to be built on the old school site opposite, I mean he threw money at that project and won, so is it the same case for Tesco and their big wig lawyers? Is this the start of the end of Bedlington Front Street as we know it? Will this be a good or bad thing?

I personally am in two minds, development of the front street would bring jobs and tidy the place up, but, I would be sad if we lost the old buildings and the character of the place even if it does look a mess, and I include the new market place in my description of mess!!!!!!! It will also be interesting to see if the 'mess' is made more of a mess when they demolish Tesco's :whistle:

Whilst conservation of the "character" of the town should be left unchanged, i believe the laws are used the wrong way.

i don't believe old and crumbling buildings should be left untouched and unused just because they are old. Every building has a shelf life, and whilst you can throw money at the ones that serve a purpose, others may as well just go.

That's not to say the character is then lost, the laws should state that the new design has to be fitting with the towns heritage.

Now, whilst a new Tesco's building would be good for that run down section of the town, i believe they must be made to be in-keeping with the aim of the surrounding area, and traditional design. (and no, i don't mean 'run down and unkempt', i mean a new looking building, with old design features as cosmetic touches) This would mean a building with a sandstone or old brickwork look about it, and not the 'powder coated steel' panels usually used by supermarkets.

Something not unlike the "face" of the current Tesco building actually...

Tesco's plans are now available on the planning portal

Follow the link above, choose General Public and when prompted for a postcode enter NE22 and you can see the list of all planning applications in Bedlington including Tesco, who have three.

10/S/00076/FUL - The proposed new store

10/S/00077/FUL - Erection of a temporary store

10/S/00-78/FUL - Demolition of the current store.

A few points:

The new store appears to have twice the floorspace of the old one

There should still be pedestrian access from the car park to Front Street

Tesco are proposing to put a mini roundabout at the Vulcan Place junction

Wow... I SOOOOOO hope this goes ahead and there aren't any further delays or rediculous objections. The town is deperate for this investment and I think it will make a huge difference.

Who know's... with this and Wetherspoons, we may even see the Front St spring back to life!

Does anyone know if there is any way we can collectively support the project... ie; petitions to go ahead, writing to anyone etc!

I think we need to act rather than sit back and wait to see if it happens!

It gets my vote!

Great plans for what would be an amazing boost to Bedlington.

I have just registered on the portal Fourgee mentions in his post and left a comment of support. I would urge everyone reading this to log on and do the same. Let's play an active part in making sure this gets the go ahead!!

Thanks for the heads up Fourgee! ;)

Done and enthusiastic support has been sent to the moderators for them to review!

It would be great to inundate the site with positive support for the plans... not saying that it will swing the final decisions that need to be made, but as Tesco keep telling us... Every little helps! :D

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
