Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Ash Vale, Surrey

Tesco originally applied to convert an empty tyre and exhaust depot into a three-storey building and a 23-space car park. The Council received 653 objections to the plans and Guildford Borough Council rejected the application in September 2008 because of a fear that a Tesco Express store would damage the business of local shops.
