Council Officers recommend acceptance of Tesco’s proposal

BREAKING NEWS – Officers recommend acceptance of Tesco’s proposal

The Planning Department are recommending acceptance of Tesco’s proposal. However, we understand the recommendation is marginal and finely balanced. The Councillors’ final decision on February 3rd 2010 could thus be swung by the very high level of local opposition. In this final week it is therefore essential that we maximise the demonstration of the strength of local opinion, as this could be the deciding factor.

There are already over 1100 letters of objection, many more than last time. We have 5,500 signatures on our petition. Our aim is to exceed the 6,318 reached last time. We now urgently need help in collecting as many more signatures as possible.

What you can do

  1. Send a letter of objection if you have not already done so via here.
  2. Write to the Councillors – CLICK HERE FOR LIST OF COUNCILLOR’ ADDRESSES

  5. Phone/email us if you can help us collect signatures, e.g. at the station, outside schools.
  6. Please contact us if you have any other ideas and join our Facebook group.
  7. Send a letter of objection to the car park extension into the garden of 18 Woodfield Lane, this is planning Application no. MO/2009/1474.
