Messages of support for the March

We have already had various messages of support for the March:

“We send you our support. Preserve your local shops as we have tried to do in our town. keep Mill Road Local. There are enough supermarkets in Cambridge.”

From Saffron Walden & District Friends of the Earth

Message of support from the home village of Tesco chief exec Terry Leahy. David and fellow campaigners have been fighting off the planned tesco in their village for some time and they have offered to do what ever they can to support our campaign here in Cambridge.

David Holland – “Keep Cuffley Rural”

The Keep Chorlton Interesting group has been campaigning since March against the application to build a Tesco Express in Chorlton, Manchester and is a coalition of local people, councillors and independent retail businesses. Last Thursday we won an important step forward in the campaign against the Tesco application.

The Council Planning Department’s recommendation was to approve the application. But following our campaign the planning committee councillors voted unanimously for a “Minded to Refuse” motion. We still have a lot of work to do – but this was an important victory.

We take heart from Finchley where the Council’s decision to refuse a Tesco Express was upheld by the Planning Inspectorate. We can – and will – win – so can your campaign.

Keep Chorlton Interesting group, Chorlton, Manchester
