On 9 January 2013, the Brentwood Gazette announced that retailing juggernaut Tesco had bought the former Alexandra pub on Warley Hill. With no requirement for planning permission, the supermarket monster, Tesco plans to land in Warley with no consideration at all for local businesses, local community or environment.
This site is dedicated to explaining why this is bad for Warley, bad for Brentwood and bad for the people of Brentwood. The site’s not anti-tesco or anti-supermarket per se, but we don’t believe this is a good location for such a shop and are concerned about Tesco’s current policy of aggressively dominating towns and villages with express stores.
