Tesco exhibits plans for Welwyn Garden City
SUPERMARKET bosses are thanking residents who attended three public exhibitions of their plans for Broadwater Road in WGC.
Of those who expressed a view, Tesco claimed its figures showed 68 per cent were in favour of plans for building a new store in the town.
More than 300 people visited over the three days.
There were two exhibitions at Woodhall Community Centre, in Mill Green Road, and one at the Christchurch Baptist Church in WGC town centre.
Louise Gosling from Tesco said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the support we’ve received in Welwyn [sic].

“I chatted to dozens of people at the exhibition and was encouraged to hear so many say they wanted to see the old Shredded Wheat site brought back to its former glory and that they welcomed the plans”.
The proposals include a swimming pool and leisure centre, improvements to the footbridge over the railway line, renovations to the Shredded Wheat silos, over three hundred new housing units, landscaping and open spaces, shop and business premises and a 50,000 sq ft Tesco superstore.

Ms Gosling added: “By building so close to the High Street, we believe we can encourage more customers to shop in the town centre, which will help boost the local economy.
“The car park would be free for anyone for up to three hours and we would also invest in new footpaths, cycle ways and street signs to encourage people to use the whole town.”
