Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Timperley, Altrincham

In Timperley residents and traders are concerned that hair salon Cuts Both Ways and takeaway Pinocchio’s could be replaced by a supermarket. Landlord, the Oddfellows Society, needs planning permission to knock down the walls between the units.

Over 200 people attended a public meeting to show their opposition to the plans. They are concerned that the proposals will kill off village shops in Timperley.

A petition against the plans  gained 2,000 signatures, with residents also worried about congestion, noise and parking chaos.
