Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Battersea, London

Northcote Road Action Group (NRAG) was set up in 2006 when residents attended a meeting of Northcote Road traders and decided they too had a vested interest in preserving the character and diversity of Northcote Rd, Battersea. The group maintained a dialogue with the Northcote Road traders’ network and has 450 members.

NRAG has successfully influenced Wandsworth Council's retail planning framework and on the 19th June 2007 Wandsworth Council unveiled details of a £50,000 study which will examine the opportunities for preserving the unique character of Battersea's Northcote Road shopping street.
