Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Datchet, Berkshire

In August 2009 Tesco confirmed plans to open an Express store on the site of the old Mulligan restaurant opposite the existing Gable End village stores.

A committee was set up to support Datchet's indigenous businesses, and the first stage in the fight to protect Datchet's future, was an open day on The Green on  September 12. Every small business in the village was invited to display their wares and advertise their services.

Plans approved

Councillors on the Windsor development control panel voted seven to six in favour of four of the planning applications (for a new shop front, plant equipment, three illuminated fascia signs and three non-illuminated panel adverts) put in by Tesco but did, however, throw out plans for the installation of an ATM machine, due to concerns over crime, anti-social behaviour and noise.
