Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Ascot, Berkshire

Tesco submitted four planning applications to the Royal Borough but parish councillors have objected to plans to install an electrical sub station, a mechanical plant and satellite dish, put in a new shop front and install an ATM machine. As well as concerns about the sub station, residents are also concerned about traffic and safety issues. For more information please see an article in the Bracknell News, 27th March 2010.

However, the Royal Borough approved planning permission for a new shopfront , one internally-illuminated fascia sign and two internally illuminated hanging signs. Planning permission has been refused for an ATM machine; the Parish Council had lodged 'objections'.  Notices of an application for an alcohol licence have also been posted.
