In December 2008 Tesco started consulting its customers and local residents on new plans for an expanded store within the existing site.
In April 2010 their initial plans were rejected by the Council. Tesco appealed the Council decision, however in March 2011 their appeal was rejected by a Scottish Government-appointed Reporter. The supermarket then submitted notice of their plans to put in a fresh planning application and held public consultations on this second version. In June 2013 it was announced that Tesco were no longer going ahead with expansion plans for the store in Milngavie.
