Tesco submits bid to change parking policy at Rotherham store

TESCO has asked the council to alter a planning condition allowing any visitor two hours’ free parking at its town centre supermarket.

Last week, the Advertiser told how the firm had announced changes to its parking policy from February 28 without getting planning permission.

Now, Tesco has asked to alter the condition so motorists parking for more than 30 minutes must spend £5 in the Drummond Street store.

It has also submitted applications for cameras which read vehicle number plates and updated signs.

Store manager Michael Cooke said the changes were a response to customer complaints about congestion in the car park.
