Start of demolition brings relief to Kinson residents as work gets underway for new Tesco store

FENCED OFF: Site of the new supermarket

PLEASED: Ramesh Lal

PLEASED: Cllr Dennis Gritt

First published in News by , Chief Reporter

WORK is getting under way in earnest on the site of a new supermarket in Kinson.

The site of the old shopping precinct in Wimborne Road has now been fully fenced off and demolition work has begun on buildings around the main complex.

After years of talk, the action is there for all to see.

Once the site has been cleared, Tesco has said that it plans to start construction in May, with an opening planned before Christmas for the new store.

Ramesh Lal, chairman of Kinson Business Forum, said: “KBF are pleased to see the project finally moving forward.

“With the start of the demolition, the local community will feel reassured that changes are now on the way. They are talking about it on the streets already with positive comments.

“There is more demolition to come at the precinct and this is expected to be completed very shortly.

“KBF looks forward to the next stage when the rebuilding starts and although this is likely to cause some traffic congestion, it will be worth it when finished.”

The work is set to cause some disruption, particularly when changes to the road layout take place, but community leaders have asked residents to bear the short-term pain for long-term gain.

Kinson councillor Dennis Gritt said: “It cannot come soon enough and it’s the final piece of the jigsaw once it’s done.

“I’m sorry for the inconvenience it’s causing everybody and I wish Tesco had run a shuttle bus like we asked, but it’s good news for Kinson residents.

“We’re also getting the Co-op at East Howe Lane, which is making good progress.

“We’ve campaigned for a decent shopping area for years and this will increase the village atmosphere.”

It was the small retailers who took advantage of the pay outs by Tescos so they could get moving. With other supermarkets about, and good public transport into Winton, Castle Lane, it was inevitable that the small traders would go in time.

As a resident I welcome your comment.It must be remembered that Kinson is still known as a "village" to older residents who are aware of it's rich history .It still has a community spirit that most others would be envious of!

They'll all stay open because they do not directly compete with Tesco.

Well TESCO won't sell pets, or the sacks of feed I get my dog which are much cheaper in the smaller shops. Pet owners know this.
And the offy will survive, why? Tins of 500ml lager are colder and cheaper in there, and it takes less time to go in get your beer and get out again. Drinkers know this.

There are too many furniture shops and hairdressers in Kinson and we need diversity. If you look at what Tesco have done in Ferndown, you will see a lot of that in their precinct shops.Another benefit is the extra parking space which will occur.Surely no can argue that that is not needed in Kinson?

I was pointing out that the Tesco development in Ferndown seems to have bought more diversity to the area! Also a free car park for all by the way! Always seems to be busy!
Tesco don't have that much furniture and certainly no hairdressers, so do you think they will go when Tesco opens in Kinson?
As Huey seems to be pointing out, there are only a few businesses in Kinson that may be affected in the long term. Dolls shop,wedding cakes, bookies,opticians,de
ntist , and vets will not be affected either!

Don't really know where you get the idea that working for Tesco is slave labour, there are plenty of other jobs who pay below the minimum wage and expect longer hours and harder work, not an ex disgruntled Tesco employee by any chance are you.
