8 January (Part 1) - Bexley bombshell

You’ve probably already heard, but Bexleyheath is swapping this…
Tesco
…for this…
Civic Centre
That’s going to leave Bexleyheath semi-permanently short of parking space, the council short of a large income stream and potentially, the unemployment figures 400 people worse. Better news is that there will no longer be any need to close Highland Road which threatened to turn Gravel Hill, Arnsberg Way, Broadway and Albion Road into a half a mile diameter roundabout.


WaitroseTesco said as recently as the beginning of last month that the future of the Bexleyheath store was secure, but the demolition will at least save them the Business Rate, they are not entirely daft. Will Teresa O’Neill be starting a ‘We Want Tesco’ petition like she did for Waitrose in Sidcup?

Despite the loss, shopaholics should not despair, Sainsbury’s are close to opening in Brampton Road and their large Abbey Wood store is only about six months away.
