Councillors refuse planning permission for Tesco's planning application

On 6th March at St Phillips Church on Mill Road councilors heard the application by Tesco for their proposed store on Mill Road. Packed with local residents, many carrying banners, the councilors refused Tesco permission for the extension to the Wilco site. They do require this extension in order to make the store viable and get access for deliveries although they currently hold the lease.
Speakers from Tesco, No Mill Road Campaign and Friends of the Earth spoke.
Councilors followed planning directives allowing an ATM and sign for the store but on the crucial extension/access vote they did not.
As they considered their decision the community raised many 'no' messages into the air.
Campaigners, residents and small traders cheered and applauded.
