Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Ystrad Mynach, Mid Glamorgan

Tesco's planned to extend its Ystrad Mynach store with more shop floor space, a café, staff restaurant and a two-storey glass atrium linking the building with the car park were approved in 2010 after an appeal on an earlier refusal.

In November 2009 Caerphilly County Borough Councillors refused the application.

Appeal successful

The independent planning inspector approved the application concluding that there would be no adverse effect on highway safety or the free flow of traffic as a result of the extension proposals and that “The proposed development would reinforce the role of Ystrad Mynach town centre as a preferred location for retail activities. There is no dispute that in time it would generate more customer trips. There would, therefore, be an opportunity for other town-centre retailers and service providers to encourage more linked trips to strengthen their businesses, as well as the viability, vitality and attractiveness as a whole.”
