ASDA set to be victor in Beeston store wars?


The Leeds Citizen brings news that the planning war on Old Lane, Beeston between Asda and Tesco is over. Well nearly …

It’s been a long, hard-fought struggle, but it looks like the store wars in Beeston in south Leeds between supermarket giants Asda and Tesco could finally come to an end next week.


If councillors on the local planning panel follow the recommendation of planning officers, the victor will be Asda, whose plans for a new, bigger store on its current Old Lane site are being given the thumbs-up in a report drafted for a panel meeting on 20th June.

  1. Is this going to be as big as Asda, say in Morley?

    This seems stupid to me, seeing as a new Asda is going to be built in Middleton, I thought the ideal choice was to build a Tesco.

    Let’s hope Asda don’t take as long to build there new store as its taking to build in Middleton, or we will be waiting years.

  2. I suspect yet another delay in Middleton then. We would have had a Tescos for two years by now if they had got permission. The councillors should vote in favour of both stores and see what happens. The closest Tesco is miles away, we need more competition in the the South Bank area.
