It seems Tesco Old Kent Road is set to expand to include a bigger store, 320 flats and some 'community facilities' (ref. p.12 of the Southwark News).

What a fantastic idea! Provided the mix of housing is right (ie. not all 250k plus private), this will greatly improve the area and provide improved services to the community. More importantly, from my perspective, the bigger store will hopefully mean less queuing time at the checkout!!

This is exciting. The store is sitting on a HUGE parking lot, and could definitely support some further, tasteful (!) development. And it will certainly give that part of the OKR some impetus.

Wahey - can't wait to see the price of our flat, very close to Tesco, go up another few percent!

Does anybody know how us local residents can get involved in the consultation process? Is there a planning officer to write to with our comments or with this not happen until an official planning application is put in?

There will be an exhibition of the plans outside the store on Fri 13 & Sat 14 October (Fri 11am-7pm; Sat 10am-4pm),

Look out for more details on this site soon.

Hello. I am relatively new to the area, but given the recent annoucement of Tesco's half year results of GBP1.0bn, surely there's no need to line there pockets anymore..

That's i.m.h.o

I dont think lining Tesco's pocket is what matters. Of course Tesco is taking over the world together with Berkeley Homes. But added decent accommodation in that part of the OKR is only to be encouraged. It's a bit of a no man's land. The Aylesbury Estate is coming down too, so that will give the area some rather nicer housing.

What about all the peole that live on the estates? Will they get to live in the nicer housing or will they be priced out of the area?
