Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Pwllheli, Gwynedd

The Chamber of Trade began campaigning in November 2005 against Asda's application. Asda had taken over the site in May 2005, and the site already had planning permission for a store, but Asda was applying for a larger store than there was existing planning permission for. While still constructing the store, Asda applied to sell up to 30% non-food goods, compared to the previous 10%. In October 2006 this application was refused by the council, the same month that the store opened. Asda appealed this decision and won.
