TESCO would actually relieve congestion in the town centre.
ASDA have the worst location for a supermarket, yet they went ahead and built it anyway. It has ****ed the life out of the town centre, and contributes enormously to traffic congestion in the town.
Harrogate West desperately needs a supermarket on the West side of town, as traffic flowing to ASDA, SAINSBURY & MORRISONS clog up Skipton Road and Wetherby Road. There is nothing worthwhile serving Jennyfield, West Park, Bilton and Killinghall. The Coop is now a "convenience" store, not fit for general shopping.
As for making the area busy; well, it is already busy handling traffic going from West Harrogate across town to reach existing supermarkets - nonsensical.
The Ripon roundabout isn't really congested, nor will it be when TESCO is established, as there are plans to alter this junction and road layout significantly. If you want to see real congestion, drive in London

For those who don't agree with the dominance of supermarket stopping one town won't change policy that needs to come from government. Personally I want choice as to whether I shop at tesco or not.

I love Tesco and it can't be built soon enough for my liking, give other supermarkets a run .. Tesco delivers a better quality of fresh foods and a larger variety in ambient.

I think it should have had its opening times limited. Have you tried to get out of jennyfilds on a morning? Both Skipton road and Jennyfield drive are a nightmare - add in shopping traffic too. Accident waiting to happen.

I just can't wait for it to built, surely it can only be an improvement to the small store on Jennyfields

I'm all for the new Tesco store being built as we are sick of having to travel to Asda to do our shopping, the local shops charge extortionate prices, and I will miss the skate park as it is an excellent filming location.

I think it is a good idea however there is already; Asda, Morrison's, Sainsburys, Waitrose and Marks and Spencers. Tesco's provide a wide choice of comsumable items at fairly cheap prices.

Tesco is no good for Harrogate, and small business.
