We don't want no Ghost Town

Shop keepers and people fighting for the town centre won the first battle when the Vale of the White Horse district council (development control committee) turned down the Tesco expansion plans.

Tesco want to expand their store, which although big, is not big enough for Tesco's expanding business. They want to knock down the garden centre, and expand their general and non-food shopping space.

Tesco are considering an appeal.

Just had a new one built 6 miles away, they bought a ford dealership a new site so they would move and funded a new leisure centre so that they could get the land of the old one.

I fear they'll get there by stealth one way or another. They have done in most other parts of the country.
