Tesco plans turned down by council
Alterations to Barnstaple Extra store rejected by planners
NORTH Devon Council has rejected two applications by Tesco to make alternations at its new Barnstaple Extra store.
The company applied for planning permission to build a customer collection storage “pod” and canopy over space taken up by 10 car parking spaces at the Seven Brethren supermarket.
It also sought approval for a number of free-standing and hanging non-illuminated directional and fascia signs.
Both applications were refused by the council’s planning department, who said the collection point for on-line shoppers was divorced from the main supermarket and would interfere with the landscape setting of the car park. Planners also had concerns about the design of the pod.
The signage application was turned down due to concerns about “unacceptable visual clutter”.
