|Tesco Store in Fulham High Street Gains Approval|
Scheme will also provide 58 new homes and four other shops
Fulham is set to gain yet another Tesco convenience store - the fifth to open in SW6.
The supermarket giant is to build a new convenience store and 58 new homes at 84 - 90b Fulham High Street, after plans by its regeneration arm Spenhill received council approval.
This is a computer generated image produced by architects Collado Collins showing what the new development will look like from the junction of Fulham Road and Fulham High Street.
This approval follows the rejection of an earlier application from the supermarket for development of this site, which is close to All Saints Church and its church hall, Fulham Palace and Fulham Palace Meadows Allotments.
"The site sits alongside the UK's largest Scheduled Ancient Monument, adjacent to a listed former Temperance Hall and a residential mansion block. Support for the scheme followed extensive consultations with the planning team, English Heritage and very active local residents."

As well as the new branch of Tesco, the plan will deliver four other retail units as well as the 48 flats and 10 houses in two blocks, following the demolition of all the existing buildings except twin gatehouses.
