In May 2011 more than 150 people attended the annual parish meeting at Collingham Memorial Hall to show their opposition to proposals for a Tesco store at the former Old Star pub in the heart of the village. Residents are concerned about the level of traffic and impact on existing traders. Local residents formed a campaign group. The group have organised public meetings and produced a leaflet which was delivered to every house in Collingham.
In November 2011 Leeds City Council planning committee approved four planning applications concerning a Tesco express store in the mid-section of The Old Star Inn, Collingham.
