Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes

Developers CBRE Global Investors plan to demolish the existing Budgens store, two office wings and the dental practice to build a larger supermarket at Cofferidge Close.

Residents had joined forces with the local council to express concerns at the controversial scheme.

In March 2013 Milton Keynes District Council refused the plans.

CBRE appealed against the decision.

Planning Inspector refuses appeal

A planning inspector has refused an appeal which would have allowed a new supermarket to be built in Stony Stratford. The decision to refuse the appeal was published in the inspector’s report, which stated: “I ave found that the proposal would be harmful to the character and appearance of the Stony Stratford Conservation Area and the setting of the Listed Building at Nos. 7-23 Silver Street.” It adds: “There would also be harm to the living conditions at 7-23 Silver Street and could be harm to local highway considerations.”
