Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Clayton, Bradford

Morrisons plans to build a 408 sq ft convenience store on a vacant site in Clayton, Bradford, have met opposition from traders and residents.

But traders have taken action and have gathered more than 1,000 signatures on a series of petitions which have been submitted to Bradford Council planning chiefs. They also fear an increase in existing traffic problems on Bradford Road, as the proposed development is opposite St Anthony's Church and Primary School.

Morrisons plans approved

A plan to open an M Local shop in Bradford Road, Clayton, sparked a huge outcry locally and was turned down by councillors in Bradford earlier this year. But the supermarket's developer, Warrior Developments, appealed the decision and now a Government planning inspector has overruled the Council and granted permission.
