Tesco Supermarket | Amble | 2fl | Cancelled

Amble Tesco store plans go on show
by Brian Daniel, The Journal, January 28th 2011


Members of the public look at the plans for a new supermarket in Amble

PLANS for a new supermarket at a Northumberland seaside town have gone on show to the public. The partners already have outline permission for the £5m development but submitted the reserved matters application to Northumberland County Council at the beginning of December.

The development proposed is a 30,000sqft store with 200-space car park on land north of Queen Street, and a new access road. Tesco says the supermarket would create 150 full and part-time jobs.

Amble Town Council organised a public exhibition of the plans at Trinity Methodist Church yesterday, to give people the chance to assess them and pass comments which will be forwarded to the county council.

Amble Tesco plan set to get the green light
The Journal, February 24th 2011


PLANS for a supermarket at a Northumberland seaside town look set to be given the go-ahead.

The Duke of Northumberland’s estates and Tesco’s planning application for an ecostore at Amble go before Northumberland County Council next week, with a recommendation to approve.

The partners’ application is for reserved matters, with outline permission already having been given.

The development proposed is a 30,000sqft store with 200-space car park on land north of Queen Street, and a new access road.

Tesco says the supermarket would create 150 full and part-time jobs.

Residents had submitted letters of objection to the council, while concerns have also been voiced by Amble Town Council, which held a public exhibition of the plans and a public meeting to discuss them.

Some of the concerns relate to the prospect of an access road being built on The Braid, a green area.

Thats good news for Amble. For a long time the residents of Amble have never had a supermarket on their doorstep. They do have a thriving high street, which will compliment the supermarket in my opinion.

Isn't there a medium sized supermarket at one end of the High Street?

It's a few years since I've been there, but isn't there a a Co-op Supermarket there?

It's been a few years since I was there as well. There is a small supermarket (similar to an express or local store) at the top of the high street, this I am lead to believe is going to the entrance to the Tesco store. At one time their was two separate Coop stores on the high street, one for electrical and one for general stuff.

Not everyone is in favour of the new TESCO . . .

Not enough consultation
Friday 20 May 2011, Northumberland Gazette


Tha Amble MP, the prospective Tory MP, Northumberland Council, Northumberland Estates, Tesco and Amble Town Council formed a coalition to force a massive supermarket to be built in this small, unique Northumberland town.

There have been vigorous protests in Bristol against similar developments and Ed Miliband is recently on record as saying that there should be more public consultation and discussion of similar developments.

We had exactly five minutes at a NCC planning meeting to oppose the Amble Tesco application. If four people wanted to speak, you would have exactly one minute and 15 seconds each. Consultation? Participation?

As one consequence of the Tesco application it seems that a supermarket will be built, but with no associated housing, denying ‘affordable housing’ to local people.

Another consequence is that Northumberland Estates secretly acquired land on the Braid from the old Alnwick District Council, not just for the access road but for future potential development.

If this happens it would ruin the newly-designated Town Green.

What's to be done about this?
Keep Amble Special Website, Posted to SSC 30th December 2011



Amble has been waiting patiently for urgent repair work to the hardstanding by the harbour for over two years now, causing inconvenience for local residents and harbour users alike while the area affected is cordoned off.

Now derelict buildings in front of North View which are due to be demolished as part of the new supermarket scheme are being left to deteriorate, attracting the attention of local youths who have been congregating there and generally wreaking havoc for residents of North Street and North View.



Will this be another eyesore that's left to decline even further while the powers that be decide what's to be done?

The buildings in question are on land owned by Northumberland Estates who are in the process of selling the site to Tesco who recently gained permission to build a new supermarket there. Northumberland Estates have boarded up the buildings on more than one occasion when they were alerted to the problems being caused by local youths congregating there, but they say it will be up to Tesco to demolish the buildings.

Robert Arckless, who as both a Town Councillor and County Councillor is in an ideal position to ensure remedial action is taken, has intervened and is trying to help the local residents which is to be welcomed. He has contacted Northumberland Estates and Tesco and has emphasised to them that they have a responsibility to the community.

Town faces double dose of bad news
Northumberland Gazette, Thursday 19 January 2012


A CRUEL double blow could be dealt to Amble, after it emerged that a planned supermarket development has been thrown into doubt while staff at a troubled food factory face fresh fears over their future. as Young’s Seafood Limited is considering moving the production of fish cakes from Coquet Enterprise Park-based Border Laird to a site in Grimsby.

While any loss of jobs at Border Lairds will have a significant impact on the town, it was hoped that the new Tesco store planned north of Queen Street, adjacent to the Braid, would provide new employment opportunities.

The Tesco store, which was due to be built in the town this year and bring 150 much-needed jobs, has been placed under review, after the company endured a bleak Christmas period.

Doug Wilson, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, admitted that the future of the store is being discussed. “It all stems from Tesco’s Christmas trading statement and we are currently reviewing some of our schemes, which includes the new site in Amble,” he said. “No decision has been made yet but as soon as a decision is made we will make an announcement.

“It is a decision that is taken collectively and it is something that we are looking at at the moment.” He added: “The land in Amble has been purchased which does complicate matters further.”

The supermarket scheme, a joint venture between Tesco and development partner Northumberland Estates, was given the go-ahead by Northumberland County Council’s north area planning committee in March last year.

Mixed reaction to Amble Tesco plans
Northumberland Gazette, Thursday 29 March 2012


Artists impression of planned Tesco on The Braid, Amble

A STALLED supermarket development will still go ahead, but work has been delayed until 2013 – sparking a mixed response. Tesco has confirmed that it will push on next spring with its Amble store, which had been thrown into some doubt earlier this year after it was placed under review in the wake of the company’s bleak festive trading period.

Yesterday Doug Wilson, the supermarket giant’s corporate affairs manager, said: “We are fully committed to bringing our new store to Amble, but unfortunately we have pushed the build back in our development programme and will not be building the store this year. We are currently planning to build the store next year starting in early spring 2013.”

The development, to be located north of Queen Street and adjacent to the Braid, is to create 150 much-needed jobs.

So news that Tesco has pledged its commitment to the town has been met with a generally warm response, especially at a time when Amble is still feeling the effects of the former Northumberland Foods factory closure and the continued uncertain future of the Border Laird premises, but there is a feeling of disappointment that the scheme has been pushed back to next year.

Tesco rumours played down
Northumberland Gazette, 15th September 2012


Rumours of a supermarket giant eyeing up a derelict factory site in Amble, despite having planning permission for a store elsewhere in the town, have been quashed.

Tesco has consent to construct a supermarket north of Queen Street and adjacent to the Braid. Development has stalled but work is due to start in 2013.

Earlier this week, a resident contacted the Gazette and claimed that the company was looking at the possibility of building its new shop at the former Northumberland Foods factory on Coquet Enterprise Park instead.

However, a spokesman for Tesco said this was ‘purely gossip’.

Tesco pull out of new Amble site
By Helen Millichamp, helen.millichamp@jpress.co.uk, Northumberland Gazette, 8th January 2015


Demolition work had started at the Tesco site in Amble.

Supermarket giant Tesco has today announced that it will no longer be building a new store in Amble. The town development, which would have seen a store north of Queen Street and adjacent to the Braid, is one of 49 across the country that have been pulled by the company, because of financial pressures.

Dave Lewis, Tesco chief executive officer, said: “It is with a heavy heart that I am today announcing that we are unable to proceed with 49 planned new store developments across the UK, including our planned store in Amble. I know that this news will be a real disappointment to many people in the local community and we’re extremely grateful for the support we’ve received for our plans. I am very aware of the importance of the site to the area and I am determined that we will work closely with Northumberland County Council to find the right solution for the local community.”

REACTION: To Tesco pulling out of Amble Superstore Plans
Northumberland Gazette, 8th January 2015


Artists impressions of plans by Northumberland Estates for a Tesco on The Braid, Amble

Amble Community leaders have voiced their disappointment, but lack of surprise, at news that supermarket giant Tesco will no longer be building a new store in the town. The company announced today that the planned superstore, north of Queen Street and adjacent to the Braid, is one of 49 that have been pulled alongside 43 unprofitable stores that are to be closed. It comes as Tesco face financial difficulties across its business.

The Amble site has been a hot topic of discussion since plans were given approval in May 2009. Speaking after the news Amble town and county councillor Robert Arckless, said: “I am disappointed because I think there was potential to have an expanded provision of a supermarket in town which most Amble people and the town council have supported. However I think, although Amble has been through some very difficult times in the last three or four years, there are signs that things are getting better on the high street and I think the focus now has to be on supporting what is there now.

“I am not surprised at all because the amount of times we have been told by Tesco that they are committed to Amble, or that they were going to do this, that or the other and it hasn’t happened. We have been expecting this for a while now and I hope they maintain the existing Tesco store. I just hope that Tesco do not sit on the site as a land bank. I think we will have to have a serious rethink about any development on that site in the future as there are strong views in the community about that space.”
