I’m calling for Teignbridge District Council to use its enforcement powers against the owners of the former One Stop on Bitton Park Road, unless they tidy up the building. The neglected property has become an eyesore, and despite numerous requests, including the offer of a community clean up, Tesco had done nothing and the building had continued to deteriorate. I am concerned about the impact of the neglected building on surrounding properties in the area. A local resident, who asked not to be named told me: “We are trying to sell our house and been told by estate agents the state of the shop is pushing house prices down.”
