Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Durrington, Worthing

A huge development, including new housing and the largest Tesco in the southeast, has been given the go-ahead in Worthing. Protesters, with significant support from the local community, set up a tree protest camp to protest the destruction of local woodland. The Inquiry into the setting up of a South Downs National Park was reopened in 2008 following the out-cry caused by the Inspectors recommendation to exclude numerous areas. The inquiry finished on the 29th May 2008.
