De­lays might help change plans

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -


to re­de­velop the Wer­ring­ton Cen­tre have been put on the back burner for at least a year.

Shop­ping gi­ant Tesco has shelved plans to build a new su­per­store re­plac­ing the ex­ist­ing one and a ma­jor re­vamp of the shop­ping area for at least an­other year, with a state­ment say­ing the funds were not avail­able to start the scheme.

It’s a sign of just how tough times are when even Tesco is start­ing to pull back on spend­ing plans.

The Wer­ring­ton Cen­tre des­per­ately needs the re­vamp and res­i­dents have been wait­ing long enough.

Per­haps the only sil­ver lin­ing to the de­lay might be the op­por­tu­nity to have more time to con­sider the de­vel­op­ment de­tail, in par­tic­u­lar whether pro­vi­sion for the pub and Post Of­fice could be made.
