Councillors vote against Tesco in Norfolk town – campaigning works!

Plans to build a Tesco store in the Norfolk town of Sheringham were yesterday rejected by councillors after a long battle against the supermarket. But the decision will now be reconsidered by a larger council planning committee in three weeks. Campaigner Eroica Mildmay said: “We are not going to give up. But it seems that North Norfolk district council’s unelected planners are saying ‘you can have any answer as long as it is yes’.” A Tesco spokesman said: “We were really pleased that people from Sheringham came to the planning meeting and spoke in support of the scheme.”
