Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Farnley, Leeds

Tesco wants to build a new superstore on the site of the former woollen mill on Stonebridge Lane in Farnley. However, local residents are opposed to the plans. Plans for a playground on the site nearly two decades ago were turned down because of the wildlife. Over 1,200 residents signed a petition masterminded by local campaign group Save Your Local Shops to oppose Tesco's plans.
