Are all part of the plan – but the council have it within their power to stop much of it. They just need to be reminded that it’s inappropriate. All the above, and just eight parking spaces, together with no changes to the narrow stretch of road, mean that this is possibly the most inappropriate location for a Tesco ever. In the week a survey announced that 25% of high street shops could vanish. And purpose built retail units remain empty across Brentwood and along the High St.
Remember, Andrew Simms of the New Economics Foundation think tank said: ‘That one company can make such massive profits is a demonstration of equally massive market failure. Unless someone steps in we’ll soon be told: ‘You can shop anywhere you like as long as it’s Tesco.’ http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/news/article-1598145/Experts-warn-of-Tesco-expansion.html#ixzz2UnJkIZZS
