Tesco's new ATM

On the 6th of December, Richmond Council Planning Committee refused Tesco’s request for a second ATM at their store on St Margarets Road. The decision states the reason for refusal was:

“The proposal, by reason of its design and close proximity to the existing ATM, would be detrimental to the appearance and character of this historic shopfront, this Building of Townscape Merit, the setting of neighbouring Buildings of Townscape Merit and would be harmful to the visual amenities of the streetscene and the character and appearance of the Conservation Area.”
