Back in 2007 Tesco wanted to expand the store to use the old garden centre. The garden centre was closed 10 years ago in 2011 and has been loosing roof tiles since then.
Two years ago Travelodge proposed putting a hotel on the site. Now, rival chain, Premier Inn have adapted the plans and have got planning permission for a hotel with 85 rooms.
There is already a Premier Inn half a mile away behind the Ock MIll Beefeater restaurant.
