Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Winchester Road, Swiss Cottage

An application was submitted in December 2005 for a redevelopment in Winchester Road, Swiss Cottage, in Northwest London. The application was for new 5-floor buildings with 76 flats and a retail unit. The development would replace an existing block of flats with a parade of shops. At that stage, residents  signed a petition asking that the existing shops be kept.

Tesco Moves In

In 2007, residents found out that a unit in the development would be occupied by Tesco for a 312 sq m store. Residents were concerned about the impact on their quality of life from deliveries, noise from the store, and traffic and parking disruption.
