Residents living near the former petrol station on Manchester Road have received a letter sent on behalf of Tesco Express confirming that work on the convenience store is underway and will continue until June.

The letter states that planned work includes the decommissioning of the fuel storage tanks, demolition of the kiosk, the building of new foundations and a two-storey building, alterations to the footpath and access point to the shop and a new car park.

Working hours during construction will be 8am-6pm weekdays and 8am-1pm Saturdays.

The planning application to demolish the petrol station and build a convenience store was approved last March.
