Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Newark, Nottinghamshire

In November 2014, Mulberry Developments, in partnership with Sainsbury’s,  submitted a planning application to redevelop the former county council highways depot off Great North Road.

However, members of Newark Business Club said it was the wrong location and there would be a big impact on traffic, as well as independent retailers. They said the store would create a backlog of traffic on to the A46 cattle market roundabout, which would be even worse when the Castle Station level crossing barriers were down.
