Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Petersfield, Hampshire

Tesco in Petersfield put forward plans to 'enhance' it's existing store with an expansion of nearly 70%, allowing additional space for convenience goods and a larger selection of comparison products. Residents and retailers were concerned about the impact this would have on the local economy and vitality of this small market town.

Tesco plans to expand its Petersfield store by buying land from The Petersfield School (TPS). The school will then fund new sports facilities by doing a £1m deal with the supermarket chain.
