Local resident Joe Smith contacted s1galston this week to enquire "if the new Tesco for Galston is going ahead".
Tesco Scottish corporate affairs manager Doug Wilson confirmed today that the application has been submitted to East Ayrshire Council. They are looking to progressing it to the planning committee and for a decision to be made by the spring.
The Tesco store is being planned for the land behind the Co-op next to the river.
In June last year the Standard published an article about the results of an independent phone survey on the shopping habits of people in Galston. The survey asked residents whether they would support a new supermarket in the town.
At the time it was reported that over 70 per cent of those surveyed support the development of a new supermarket for Galston.
