TESCO has finally submitted details omitted from its planning application for a superstore in the city - and the scheme has been registered.

That means that the proposal for a 4,000 square metre store on the former Eversheds print works site in London Road, St Albans, should go before a local planning committee in June.

St Albans District Council has 13 weeks from the date of registration of the application to put the plans in front of councillors and it is then likely to be passed on to the main planning referrals committee.

In early March the council asked Tesco for details missing from its long-awaited planning application which had been submitted in February.

The council wanted large-scale store plans and floor plans for the locally-listed houses in London Road which Tesco is planning to refurbish.

Planning portfolio holder, Cllr Chris Brazier, confirmed this week that the application was now complete and registered and local residents would be formally consulted about it.
