Tesco's visualisation of the entrance to their proposed Tenbury store
Management Strategy as being "significant" and "historic".
Heritage buildings are sometimes retained when redevelopment projects go ahead. One example can be found in the Lowesmoor area of Worcester. The scheme involves the construction of an ASDA Superstore and some other shops and the former infirmary will be retained and restored for use as offices, preserving an interesting part of Worcester's history.
Another example of an old infirmary being
revitalised can be found at the University, where the Royal Infirmary was given a new life as the home of Worcester's Business School.
Tenbury Futures have been pressing for the
Tesco's plan to build a superstore on Tenbury's former cattle market site will not go in front of the planning committee until at least March, giving supporters and opponents more time to put their opinions forward.
Tesco want to demolish the existing buildings so they can build a large modern supermarket with car parking. Supporters claim this would provide shoppers with more choice and lower prices but opponents say it would damage the existing shops and point out that in any case, some things cost more in Tesco than they do in Tenbury's existing shops.
Key issues for objectors include the demolition of the old infirmary. This is not, in itself, a listed building, but it is within the designated Conservation

Area. It was built to serve Tenbury's Workhouse (which is listed) so it also has what the government calls "group value". It is described in the Council's recently-published Tenbury Wells Conservation Appraisal and
retention of Tenbury's old infirmary as part of a mixed use redevelopment, allied to the construction of a new bridge across the Teme, to overcome the problems the current bridge causes.
The closure of Teme Bridge has shown just
how dependent Tenbury is on this crossing and the existing bridge has often been criticised as being too narrow and too awkward for today's traffic. Many lorries are forced to drive on the pavement, creating an obvious safety risk, and there have also been numerous minor accidents, leading to calls for a second crossing on safety grounds.
Any development in Tenbury that brings more people into the town will increase traffic flow over the bridge, suggesting that if the old cattle market is to be developed, the need for a new crossing will become even greater.
