Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Pimlico, London

Traders in Pimlico organised a 300-signature petition against a proposal to open a Tesco Express store in their midst. Westminster Council received a planning application from Tesco to open a store on the site of an empty newsagent, a grocer and a Costcutter, merging all three premises. Many local businesses said the loss of their shops would destroy the area and be a blow to the neighhourhood. Local residents also wrote to the Council to oppose the planning application.  However the Express store opened in Lupus Street in July 2010.
