Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire

Tesco was granted approval in 2009 to expand its store in Tewkesbury by 25%. The plan  included the building of 52 apartments on a neighbouring area of land.  Residents were concerned that expanding the Tesco store would create a monopoly and reduce competition in the town.  A campaign group, Moreton Against Sainsbury’s Supermarket, was set up to fight this application.
