Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Ruthin, Denbighshire

Campaigners, residents and traders fought an application by Tesco for a 20,000 sq ft store in the market town of Ruthin, with significant concerns about the impact on local businesses. The store was given the go-ahead in September 2005 and opened in August 2006, following which Tesco quickly applied for an extension to the store. Following refusal Tesco appealed and the Inquiry Inspector overturned the DCC decision and granted permission.
