Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Cheylesmore, Coventry

Residents fighting plans to turn a derelict Cheylesmore pub site into an Asda supermarket have come up with an alternative proposal of their own. They have drawn up their own plan to transform the site into a multi-million pound community centre.  Netto had originally planned to build a shop on the land, which it owned, but twice withdrew its application. Netto has now been bought by Asda.
