Invite from Tesco

TESCO has announced that members of community groups have been invited to meet its planning and design team later this month to help deliver a new store or Milngavie.

As part of the ongoing consultation, activists have been invited to attend a roundtable discussion to analyse the Scottish Government reporter’s decision and to collect views on how the supermarket giant can address the feedback on its previous proposals.

Gloria Coats, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to discuss the feedback on our previous plans, and address the key points raised by the Scottish Government reporter earlier in the year.

“By meeting with representatives from a variety of local community groups at this early stage, it will allow us to consider their representations and opinions and feed them back into the design process so we can deliver a store that’s right for Milngavie.

“As part of this consultation process which will be ongoing throughout the coming months, we will be hosting a two-day public consultation exhibition in June to allow the wider community to view the development of the proposals. We will be advertising the details of this public exhibition widely so that local residents have the chance to share their views on the future of our store in Milngavie.

“We remain committed to investing in Milngavie, creating new jobs and delivering the modern shopping experience that customers tell us they want while keeping people shopping locally.”
