Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Woodside Green, Croydon

Croydon Council received a planning application from Asprey Homes to demolish The Beehive pub and replace it with a retail unit along with five flats, eight houses and parking. A local shopkeeper objected to the proposals and started a petition, which picked up more than 400 signatures in its first four days.

Planning officers ruled that the development would have resulted in an overdevelopment of the site which would have affected the character of the area. They also said that a new retail store would have overshadowed the small shopping parade and would have had a negative impact on the other businesses in Woodside.
