Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Idle, Bradford

Tesco wants to construct a convenience store on the site of what is now the car park of The George pub in Idle. 551 people signed a petition against the plans for a Tesco Express store which they believe could “destroy” their business. Concerns have also been raised about the potential for increased traffic and parking problems.
