Tesco has revealed plans to build a new superstore in the north of England, with the development set to incorporate a dental surgery.
The supermarket chain also wants to put a gym above the location in Stretford, Manchester, reports the Manchester Evening News.
But the plans have been met with opposition as a result of the fact the new gym could affect nearby Stretford Leisure Centre and the newly-opened Stretford Sports Village, which is based at the local high school.
Ward councillor Anne Duffield said: “This is an ill thought through idea as it would sit within a few hundred yards of the newly-opened Stretford Sports Village.”
Tesco’s plans are linked to the redevelopment of Lancashire County Cricket Club, which plays at Old Trafford.
Oral health helpline advisor at the British Dental Health Foundation Karen Coates recently noted trips to the dentist need to be taken regularly in order to catch any problems early enough to be dealt with.
