Published: 12 July, 2011
WISBECH: A £50m plan to build a Tesco superstore and retail park at Wisbech has got the green light.
The scheme will start later this year and be completed in two phases with overall completion hoped for late autumn 2013.
Tesco and developer Cromwell Retail Park are to jointly redevelop the former Wisbech greyhound stadium site and its nearby store site, which will be knocked down to make way for the retail scheme, after a previous plan stalled.
The new 25 000sqm scheme includes a Tesco food, cinema a restaurant complex.
On a neighbouring old Tesco site, Fenland Council also gave planning consent to a 10 400sqm retail park.
