Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Coventry, Warwickshire

Despite over 100 objections from local residents and Councillors the planning committee narrowly voted to grant planning permission to Tesco, to replace its existing store at Cannon Park with a new Tesco Extra, providing it met conditions including providing community funding, traffic measures, and restricting the residential blocks to three stories.

Local residents were concerned traffic would clog up already congested roads and that the partial closing of De Montfort Way would force elderly and disabled residents to use a “dangerous” new walkway through an underground car park, as well as crossing six lanes of traffic.
