Sainsbury's wants to build a 55,000 sq ft store in Westfield. However, some residents are concerned that a store planned at St Peter's Park could take business away from nearby Radstock and Midsomer Norton and cause traffic problems. Over 100 people have signed a petition opposing the plans. Radstock and Midsomer Norton's Chamber of Commerce is concerned that the plans would put traders out of business.
The proposed 55,000 sq ft (5,000 sq m) store would sell food, clothes and homeware and have a petrol station.
