Dear Editor,

IT IS good to hear that Tesco is 'committed' to opening a new Metro store in Bow. How much we all want a supermarket back in the Roman Road.

I will be a frequent customer at the proposed store as a resident of one of the adjoining streets and look forward to the opening in October, 2011.

But I am sure they would want the store to be part of a building that is welcomed by the residents and visitors to the area. The proposed building doesn't do that.

The store will be just one corner of a huge block of flats dwarfing its surroundings.

The developers have not taken account with the unfortunate current plans the thousands of people who have objected.

Tesco should use its influence to get the developers to listen and start a dialogue with people.

I am sure they would want a building that enhances Bow that they can be proud of.
