The Effect of Tesco Moving!
September the 1st, 2011
The Rotherham District Civic Society would like the people of Rotherham to say what they think about the 'soon to be announced' plans to move Tesco from the Forge Island site to the area , which will be cleared, where Norfolk House, the Central Library and Civic Offices now stand.  An enlarged Tesco will impact (again) on the Town Centre, but there will be huge traffic issues as a major store moves to the same side of town as ASDA and Parkgate Retail World.  It would be nice to think that the Council will listen to people, but commercial considerations are paramount at present.
