New Tesco Express under construction at Westbrook, 0.5 miles from Arlington

It doesn’t get any weirder than this. Construction for a new Tesco Express store is underway at Westbrook, less than half a mile, from the proposed superstore site at Arlington Margate.¬†Signs state the store is scheduled for opening on February 24th 2012.

Hoardings are up, and work is underway. This is less than a 10 minute walk round the corner from the Arlington, effectively creating a Tesco sandwich of the independent shops at Westbrook along the A28, The Canterbury Road.

Feedback or questions welcome! 0800 028 6428

Address is 56 Canterbury Road, Margate. Planning Application TH/08/1286.
Erection of three storey building containing A1 retail unit on ground floor, 8no self contained flats, and installation of ATM to front elevation and air conditioning units to the rear.
