|Westgate Tesco Express from Plans|
The final decision on a Tesco Express in Westgate's Station Road, comes back to the Council's Planning Committee for debate on the evening of 17th April.
This time, no public speaking is allowed but as the councillor representing the objectors, I am allowed a summing-up. So our small band of dedicated volunteer experts, historians and conservationists, will be working with me on a script to attack the weaknesses in the planning and highways department's arguments with forensic precision.
One of our local residents, Brian Kok, a 'Computer Buddy' at Westgate Library - see comments - has used his professional talents to create a three-dimensional rendering of the Tesco building from its published plans and made it available to everyone by using Google's free 'Sketchup' product that you can download here. This will allow you to view the building in 3D and from all angles.
download it here.
So, if you want to see the plans in 3D on your computer, first download the Google Sketchup program and install it and then download and save the Tesco data file to your PC. Double click it and it should then immediately open-up the plans for you to play with in Sketchup.
I have included some screen captures so you can see what it looks like and judge for yourself, whether the building with its high quality PVC materials, is indeed 'Sympathetic; to Westgate's Station Road and Conservation Area.
It's more than likely that the council chamber will be packed to capacity once again at 7pm on 17th April, so please arrive early if you wish to attend.
