Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Sprowston Road, Norwich

Residents and City Councillors for Sewell are fighting an appeal by Roger Rush, who owns the building, against the refusal on the grounds that the site is in a defined local centre, and that the “proposed site access, servicing and parking arrangements or the movement of people will not have a significant adverse impact on the amenity of neighbouring residents.”

Sainsbury's plans refused

Plans for a new Sainsbury’s Local convenience store at the junction of four roads in Sprowston Road, plus the demolition of the existing business and erection of two new flats were refused because a store on the Rush Lighting site would have a detrimental effect on the amenity of people in Gertrude Road and the surrounding area.
