A petition with 2,000 signatures opposing a planned Tesco Express store in a village has been handed to the borough council.
Small business owners in North Anston started a campaign opposing plans by Tesco to build on the car park of the Cutler pub on Woodsetts Road. They are concerned the new store would put local shops out of business and was likely to create traffic chaos.
All but one of the 14 members of Anston Parish Council voted to formally object to the application.
Twenty objections have also been submitted on the council’s website.
