Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Newington Green, London

Newington Green Action Group succesfully fought a supermarket application on Newington Green in North London, a historic Conservation Area around a newly refurbished open space. Planning permission had been received for a mixed use development including flats and restaurants, but Islington Council and then the Planning Inspectorate refused applications to modify the development to include a supermarket instead of restaurant units. The application was refused because of the impact that the larger supermarket unit would have on traffic and the vitality and viability of local shops in the conservation area.
