The Riverhead Aisher Way - Tesco has no special value to the neighbourhood and should not receive a special designation.   

It it very close to the diverse local parade at Riverhead which has a range of shops including a pharmacy, post office, convenience store, dry cleaners, coffee shop, newsagent.  These have survived or even opened since  Tesco arrived.  This area at the Riverhead roundabouts does merit recognition. 

" Destination"  supermarkets are losing favour as a means of shopping with the rise of the internet.  If this site were to go for housing or unobtrusive business use that would be welcome.
