Decision in store tomorrow on Tesco plans to set up shop at old Winterton pub and create jobs
A decision on whether Tesco can press ahead with a new store in Winterton is expected to be made during a meeting held in Scunthorpe tomorrow (Wednesday, January 16).
Tesco wants to set up shop on the site of the disused Cross Keys pub at 5 King Street.
Twenty new jobs have been forecast.
Four Tesco applications will be before the North Lincolnshire Council planning committee's monthly meeting tomorrow in the at Scunthorpe Civic Centre, off Ashby Road, from 2pm.
The Tesco application is considered to be of significant public interest with potential to impact on a conservation area.
The retail giant is seeking listed building consent to carry out alterations to the front elevation, make internal alterations, erect fencing to the side, install a plant room and put up fencing.
It is also seeking permission to display signs.
About 30 letters of objection were received to the original plans for the site, and there have been four further objections to the amended details.
North Lincolnshire Council has also received a 775-signature petition.
The application was deferred at the committee's December meeting so councillors could visit the site.
The committee is chaired by Councillor Arthur Bunyan, of Broughton, and interested members of the public are welcome to go along, listen to the discussions and watch as councillors rule on the applications.
