Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Clevedon, North Somerset

Residents have been campaigning against Tesco plans for a new Extra superstore in Clevedon, a small residential town in North Somerset, since 2007.

In July 2007 Tesco withdrew its plans to demolish the existing store and build a new store twice as big. However, in December 2008 it published new plans but these were rejected by North Somerset Planning Committee.

Tesco submits extension plans

The extension was for a new "dot.com" facility, to expand its internet home delivery service. Clevedon Chamber of Commerce objected to the plans.
