McDonalds at Tesco application withdrawn

June 7, 2021 7:09 PM

The scheme to put a McDonalds restaurant on the car park at Trowbridge Tesco had generated a lot of objections from residents, especially those on the neighbouring Longfields estate, and including a petition with 1500 signatures.

The withdrawal of the application follows sharp criticism by the Wiltshire Council highways officer of the way the applicants had attempted to assess the traffic impact of the scheme. "The TA (Transport Assessment) includes misleading statements that do not illustrate the whole picture, making reading and clarity confusing."

The applicants could have another go at sorting out the traffic and other problems and submit a new application, or they could take note of the significant problems of the site and the level of local opposition, and forget the whole thing.
