Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Amble, Northumberland

Northumberland Estates plans to build a 30,000 sq ft supermarket on land at the southern edge of the Braid.

Almost 200 responses were returned by people in Amble opposed to the plans in 2009. Residents launched a campaign saying local people were not properly consulted by either Northumberland Estates or the county council.
