Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Lydney, Forest of Dean

Tesco - Asda's main rival in Lydney - took its case to the Court of Appeal in another bid to quash the planning permission granted by Forest of Dean District Council in March 2014.

 Tesco maintain it will lose more than a third of its Lydney store's trade to a new Asda.The council's planning committee took the view that the harm to the town centre would be mitigated by the developer's commitment to contributing funds to regeneration, including £30,000 for a new market square and £210,000 for further town centre improvements.
