Tesco are applying for permission to do some alterations to premises in the High Street, Woburn Sands, Milton Keynes. The premises were recently occupied by a restaurant and before that a cycle shop and earlier an electrical store.
A campaign group "Keep Tesco out of Woburn Sands" has been set up. A petition gathered over 3,000 signatories and on 12th March 2012 members of the group handed in the petitions to Tesco Head Office in Cheshunt. The group held a protest outside the former Zen Restaurant on 23rd June 2012.
