Tesco Express has been rumoured - but it's only a rumour and I've no idea how credible it is.

I've just got a call back from Tesco.

She confirmed it was going to be a Tesco Express but didnt have an opening date other than "at least two months away as that's when we get told".

No sign of any planning or licensing applications yet but I'll be watching closely.

Is it just me, or is the last thing we need in London another Tesco Express (or Sainsbury Local)?
Why not another full-size supermarket?? =P

a) Tesco Expresses are much more profitable (profit/area) than supermarkets
b) On the rare occasions when a large enough plot comes up (eg 1 Stamford Street), the council allows other things.

I'm quite doubtful whether Great Suffolk Street would be a good location for a supermarket, though. It's not well served by buses and I'm not sure the surrounding roads could cope with the delivery lorries.

In their original planning application they applied for permission for:

A1 (shop) and B1 (offices) - there is a fuller description of these categories at http://www.opsi.gov.uk/si/si1987/Uksi_19870764_en_2.htm

Other use, such as a solictors (A2) would require planning permission. Permitted development allows a change down the numbers (ie from an A3 to an A2 or an A1), but not up (ie from a shop to an estate agent or a bar).
