Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Dinas Powys, The Vale of Glamorgan

Hundreds of people signed a local traders’ petition opposing plans by Tesco to open an Express store at the Castle Oak pub. The local traders and residents were concerned that the arrival of the new store will drive many of the local shops to close and bring an end to the shopping area in the Murch.

Dinas Powys Community Council discussed two planning applications from Tesco -one for various signs and the other for the installation of three air conditioning units and one condenser unit.  The Council agreed that whilst it could not oppose the two applications, it would reiterate its objections to Tesco’s being located at the Castle Oak and the installation of an ATM machine.
