Asda to open tyre fitting service in Queenferry – subject to planning approval
Asda are hoping to add a new tyre fitting service at its Queensferry store.
A planning application has been submitted to Flintshire County Council for the installation of a ‘pre-fabricated modular kiosk’ which will be used to create a tyre-fitting bay and counter sited on the supermarket car park.
The kiosk will be designed to complement the pre-existing corporate colour palette the planning documents say, a free-standing canopy will also be fitted alongside the kiosk.
The 19 page planning application document goes onto say ‘Careful consideration has been placed on the positioning of the unit to ensure that there is no disruption to vehicular and pedestrian circulation within the site, nor will there be detriment to the amenity of any residential area by reason of noise, vibration, smell, fumes, smoke, soot, ash, dust or grit’.
Not everybody is happy about Asda’s proposals, comments on the Deeside.com facebook page expressed concerns for local established businesses;
Cathy Brown said: “There’s plenty of garages/tyre fitters in Deeside. Asda will be taking money from those hard workers. Pure greed.”
Darren Dunn said: “Asda trying to put small businesses out of business once again. They will be making cars next.”
Philip Tarran said: “The council should refuse permission putting local business out of work.”
While Independent local retailer Warren Butler said on Twitter:
“Hopefully Flintshire planners will turn down Asda proposal for tyre fitting facility at its Queensferry site.
A spokesperson for Asda told Deeside.com;
“We’re continually looking to offer our customers a broad range of goods and services and, subject to receiving planning permission, this new tyre fitting service will add another great service to our customers”.
A location map submitted with the planning application shows the area, marked in red, where the new tyre fitting kiosk will be situated.
