Campaigners in Grange collected more than 1,000 signatures against proposals for a new store, to be built on the 340sq metre site of the former Witcombe Service Station on Grange Road.
Plans were submitted in April 2012 but residents say the new store is unnecessary and will increase the traffic flowing through the housing estate.
In September Gloucester City Council Planning Committee met to consider the application but after hearing representations from local traders members deferred their decision until they receive more information on how it will affect local businesses. Please see an article at thisisgloucestershire.co.uk, 7th September 2012. However, they did then approve the plans and in December Tesco applied for an alochol license.
