Tesco plan approved for Liverpool’s largest supermarket
Feb 25 2009 By David Bartlett, Liverpool Daily Post
LIVERPOOL’S biggest supermarket is to be built in Toxteth, in the largest private sector investment in the area since the riots.
Tesco has promised to offer at least half of the 500 jobs that will be created to local long-term unemployed people.
The supermarket hopes to start construction of the £30m store on the former Mecca bingo hall, in Park Road, by September.
The plans, which were approved by Liverpool’s planning committee yesterday, will also see £600,000 spent improving the local environment.
Riverside ward councillor Steve Munby said the store would provide much-needed regeneration for the area.
He said: “This is fantastic news.
“At present, the site is desolate, but now we will have 500 jobs moving into Liverpool 8 at the start of a recession.”
The store is being built using the Tesco’s “Regeneration Partnership” model, working with local agencies like the Plus Dane Group.
Deborah Hayeems, regional corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: “We are excited to get going with the regeneration partnership.
“We are already working with Job Centre Plus to get people ready for jobs.
“It is a dynamic community but an area with high unemployment, so we are ring-fencing half the jobs for long-term unemployed.” The proposed store will occupy 9,571 square metres, with 537 parking spaces and a petrol station.
The site will be able to house several small retail units, including a community cafe, while the current buildings will be demolished.
Planning chairman Cllr Dave Irving said: “It’s a massive store, far bigger than I am happy with.
“But you have to take into account the regeneration of the area.”
