Tesco to build bigger store

Supermarket chain Tesco has gained planning permission to expand its store in Station Road.

Harrow Council’s planning committee approved plans to create a bigger Tesco Extra with a multi-storey car park and new shops and flats fronting Station Road at a meeting on January 18.

HCRA was among those who objected to the scheme because of the impact on traffic and the character of the area.

It was also feared a Tesco Extra, which will sell more items like TVs and fridges, could draw shoppers away from Harrow town centre.

As part of the plans, Tesco has promised to make improvements to the junction where Station Road meets Hindes Road and Woodlands Road.
