Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Crosby, Merseyside

Sainsbury’s in Crosby Village is planning to build a new store more than 3 times bigger than the existing one and villagers feel this will damage the village beyond repair.

In May 2010 Sainsbury's submitted a planning application to Sefton Council for the new 50,000 sq ft store at Moor Lane. The plans include seven retail units which could be used to house shops, restaurants, cafes, bars and takeaways, as well as financial and professional services. Full planning permission is also being sought for Sainsbury’s to change the use and alteration of its existing foodstore.
