This is fantastic news anyway you look at it. The fact that Tesco is extremely profitable (because they are very good at what they do) really has nothing to do with it.

As Jackie said, the plans don't really tell us anymore than we already know, other than the fact that the re-generation will include improvement works to both OKR itself and the entrance to Burgess Park. At the back of the brochure was a tear-off card which allowed you to vote in favour or against the scheme and a box for comments...I voted 'yes'!
