Stop Tesco in Stirchley campaign

Another Stirchley is Possible is a local campaign opposing Tesco’s plan to build a superstore in Stirchley. 

 
The campaigners, who aim to promote real, locally based regeneration for the area, are holding a public consultation:

Stirchley Community Centre
Saturday 12 July
10.00 – 14.00

to ask residents what developments they’d like to see in their neighbourhood.

They say:

“There are many reasons why we think that another Superstore in Stirchley is not needed:

  • Massive increase in traffic in already jammed Pershore Rd
  • Tesco’s buying power (4th largest retailer in the world) means it will force all other local retailers out of business
  • We want a Stirchley which will attract visitors and people to live here, not drive in, shop and drive out.”

They don’t appear to have a website (hey guys, set up a blog!) [Edited:  they have:]

This is what Friends of The Earth say about the Tesco scheme.

And here is some detailed planning stuff from Tescopoly.
