A gap site close to Tesco in Lurgan has been revamped and enhanced thanks to lobbying from council.

Tesco obtained planning permission some years ago to demolish a building at Market Street which it owned with a view to replacing it with another building. Since the building was demolished, the gap site had appeared unsightly in the local area. Keen to ensure that the town centre is kept bang up to date and created the right atmosphere to attract visitors, investment and shoppers, Craigavon Borough Council lobbied Tesco to take action to improve the appearance of the site. As a result, Tesco has now erected a creative, eye-catching artistic screen to obscure the site from public view pending redevelopment.
