Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Brentwood, Essex

Tesco wants to open an Express shop in Warley, inside the old Alexandra pub, also formerly known as the Warley Tavern.

Planning permission is not required to transform the building into a shop, but campaigners who are against the idea, have asked for a public meeting to be held so opinions can be voiced. This Express store would be the fourth Tesco store in Brentwood joining other Tescos in The Broadway, Shenfield, and at the Esso petrol station, in London Road, Brentwood, in the town.
