Cunningham comments on Tesco decision not to build Crieff store

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, SNP Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has received a letter from Tesco informing her that the supermarket chain no longer intends to proceed with its plans for a supermarket at the Duchlage Farm site in Crieff.

Commenting on this news, Ms Cunningham said:

“Despite Tesco’s repeated insistence that they were committed to building this supermarket and bringing new jobs and investment to the town, this announcement comes as little surprise to me. 

“The lack of any actual progress on the project, coupled with the reports we have been seeing of wider difficulties for the company, pointed very clearly towards this conclusion.

“This brings to a pretty unsatisfactory end what has been a very long-running saga which began with two competing supermarket giants promising a lot in terms of jobs, amenity and investment in the community but several years and a lot of legal wrangling later we are exactly where we were at the outset.”
