Tesco has secured full planning permission for a new superstore and petrol filling station in Mablethorpe.
The new store will deliver a significant number of new jobs, with a typical superstore creating jobs for around 200 people in a variety of roles.
Tesco plan to start work on the site in early 2021 with the development designed to meet national and local guidelines on sustainability. Measures will include the use of PV solar panels for renewable energy and the planting of over 100 native trees as part of the site landscaping.
The new store, located off Golf Road, will take part in a number of community programmes run by Tesco to give back to the communities it serves, including its ‘Community Food Connection’ food surplus redistribution programme, and its ‘Bags of Help’ community grants.
“We’re delighted to be investing in a new Tesco store in Mablethorpe,” said Keith Jackson, Tesco’s Local Communications Manager.
“We hope to start work on the site early in the New Year and look forward to serving the Mablethorpe community when we open our doors later in 2021.”
Councillor Steve Kirk, East Lindsey District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Coastal Economy, said: “I’m very pleased that Tesco have been able to secure planning permission for their new superstore.
“This represents a huge investment in Mablethorpe which, in addition to creating a significant number of sustainable employment opportunities for our residents, will provide a huge boost to the town through the fantastic community work that Tesco do.”
