A big thank you to the 30 plus followers who braved the cold to attend our photo shoot (at the soon to be ex-Tesco site), including Cllr Chris Townsend – Leader of Mole Valley District Council, Cllr James Friend – Deputy Leader of Mole Valley, Cllr Simon Ling – Head of the Independents and Cllr Peter Stansfield – Independent.
We have been informed that Tesco will be selling the Ashtead site in The Village! Hence there will not be a new Tesco store being built in Ashtead. This is one of 49 new schemes that Tesco has cancelled. Tesco are also closing 43 existing stores.
Tesco say they will work with the local council, in deciding what is best for the site.
The plan to develop the community garden will carry on.
We will let you know as soon as we have any more news.
We would like to thank all our followers who have supported us over the past 7 years.
As always we will keep you informed of any further developments.
Remember you can post any comments below.
With kind regards,
B.A, M.Sc. (Oxon.), CQSW, M.Phil. in Town Planning
Spokesperson for SAVE – “Save Ashtead’s Village Environment”
