Campaigning to curb supermarket power



Portsmouth, Hampshire

Portsmouth Football Club have signed a deal with Tesco for a 5,500 sq m supermarket next to Fratton Park.


Romsey, Hampshire

In 2012 Tesco announced plans to build a store on the edge of Romsey on land to be leased from the Broadlands Estate. Tesco wants to develop a six-acre site known as the “Fairground Field” south of the bypass. Tesco say they have identified a need for a mid-range supermarket in Romsey, which is already served by up-market Waitrose and cut-price chain Aldi.

Thornhill Park Road, Southampton

Residents are concerned about Tesco's plans to redevelop the site at 1-5 Thornhill Park Road will have a negative impact and could force nearby independent stores to shut while causing traffic problems on the busy road.

Tesco has handed in an application to the city council for “minor works” at the site.
