Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Hexham, Northumberland

Many groups in Hexham were opposed to the development and tried to stop it. The Hexham Civic Society and many residents were concerned about the impact of local traders, as Hexham is a town with a large number of independent shops, and about the impact on traffic. Hexham Community Partnership developed a 3-year “action plan” about how the town could survive Tesco.
