500 jobs at Glasgow Harbour Tesco

06 Jun 2011

The new Tesco store proposed at Glasgow Harbour could create 500 new jobs in the area. Plans have just been submitted for the supermarket, along with a proposal for housing and office space at Beith Street.

Tesco and the Glasgow Harbour developers have submitted plans to regenerate two key sites along the waterfront.

They aim to provide a new Tesco supermarket at Glasgow Harbour and housing and office space at Beith Street, Partick.

A planning application for the developments has been made to Glasgow City Council.

Gloria Coats, corporate affairs manager for Tesco, said: "The feedback we have received throughout the consultation process has revealed that the benefits of our proposals, such as job creation and more choice, have been recognised by the local community.

"Our proposals for a supermarket at Glasgow Harbour will create hundreds of local jobs - providing a welcome boost to the area's economy, offering flexible working and a great benefits package to local residents and helping the long-term unemployed back to work."

Feedback from a consultation into the plans showed 76% of respondents supported the Tesco proposals for a supermarket at Glasgow Harbour. A total of 80% believed they would benefit from the supermarket and 72% felt a store at Glasgow Harbour would encourage them to shop locally.
