Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Windmill Hill, Enfield

Windmill Hill is a local Enfield shopping parade that currently accommodates two kiosks, an off-licence, a Budgens and several restaurants. Tesco's proposed site sits on this hill with the entrance in a quiet cul-de-sac that sits within less than a 15 mile radius of 124 other Tesco stores.  Considering this, the fact that the site has no parking, is less than 3,000sqft and we have Budgens on the parade opposite, why do we need a Tesco? 
 
Lidl informed residents and local businesses 8 months ago that they had expressed an interest in a larger site on the same road with parking, but the council refused the application on the grounds of (I) GD1 of Enfields Unitary Development Plan, which stated that there was insufficient car parking, and it "would be an inappropriate development having regard to the surroundings with residential properties" - yet these are the two sections of the Development plan that were the grounds on which Tesco have been accepted!
