Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Shepshed, Loughborough

Coral Retail Projects Ltd submitted plans to Charnwood Borough Council for a 372 sq m Tesco Express store and 15 car parking spaces. The development would involve demolitioning St Winefrides Church Hall, in Garendon Road and building a new Express store.

The planning officer recommended that Councillors refuse the application as it “does not address current issues of need,” adding that he was aware of “other more central sites” not covered in an assessment – carried out by Tesco – of other possible Shepshed sites.
