BABERGH DISTRICT COUNCIL MEDIA RELEASE
PLANNING COMMITTEE REFUSES HADLEIGH TESCO APPLICATION
For immediate release: 18 September 2013
This morning Babergh’s Planning Committee voted to refuse Tesco’s application to build a supermarket at the former Brett Works Site in Hadleigh.
After considering the Tesco application on the edge of town site in Hadleigh, Babergh’s Planning Committee decided to refuse the proposed development. This application represented the culmination of earlier proposals and involved a scheme which had been the subject of much negotiation including a design review by Shape East. Following consideration of a comprehensive Committee report which set out all the impacts, the Committee considered all the issues and decided, by 7 votes to 6, to refuse it on the basis that the proposed development would negatively affect the sustainability and vitality of Hadleigh Town Centre.
