TESCO has given up on its bid to build an Ottery outlet, ending the town’s long-running store wars saga. The firm withdrew an appeal against the decision that saw blueprints for the town’s derelict factory site refused planning permission- just weeks after lodging it. Planning chiefs hadn’t ruled out the possibility of Ottery ending up with both a Sainsbury’s and a Tesco when the appeal was revealed in June.
