Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire

Tesco applied to expand its existing store on Vimy Road, Linslade by demolishing the Homebase store next door. These plans were approved in December 2010 

In February 2011, Tesco applied to extend the store further. The I Love Leighton Buzzard group, set up to promote the town, opposed the plans, fearing that by selling items that are usually sold in the town centre Tesco would take enough business away from the shops to cause some to close.In December the Leighton-Linslade planning committee voted five -one to approve the application.
