Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Congleton, Cheshire

Tesco resubmitted plans for an extension at it's Barn Road branch later in 2008. However, concerns were raised over the impact the extension would have on other stores in the town centre, and the planning officer's report said: "It is considered that the Tesco proposal could deter investment in the town centre, which would be contrary to the overall spatial planning strategy for the area. It is also considered that the proposal could potentially divert much greater levels of trade from the town centre than suggested by the applicants in their assessment."
