Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Blythe Bridge, Staffordshire

Tesco submitted plans to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to turn a community pub " The Duke of Wellington" into a Tesco Express store. The site already has permission for use as a convenience store, but Tesco had to submit applications for an extension to the ground floor, air conditioning equipment and a cash machine, as well as advertisement consent for signage. The proposals also include enhancements to the existing elevations to improve access.

The proposals have attracted heavy opposition from residents and Forsbrook Parish who fear the new store will increase traffic and noise.
