It is expected that Tesco will have to go through legal channels to evict the camp. No court date is yet set. The camp currently believe that Tesco will be exposed in court for not having legally gained permission to build the store. Tesco are claiming there are only around 200 trees on site.
A Parish Poll was conducted by the council over the issue of relocating the War Memorial. Through this poll local people voted for it to stay in place.
People are needed at the camp to help keep Tesco from beginning work.
