TESCO will soon be coming to Martock after councillors decided to approve the plans.
The supermarket chain's application to build a new foodstore in the north of the village on the site of Paull and Co Ltd, in Coat Road was approved by South Somerset District Council's Area North Committee yesterday.
The proposed 15,720 sq ft development has been described as being of a similar size as the Tesco store at Langport.
A Tesco representative previously said the store could be built within two years.
A full report of the meeting and reaction to the news will be in next week's Western Gazette.
