Success for Britain’s landmark campaign

Tesco withdraws plans for Sherborne -  5th September 2013

We’re loving every mouthful of Tesco MD Chris Bush’s announcement in which he outlines Tesco’s reasons for NOT submitting a formal planning application in Sherborne.  We always knew we had a really strong planning argument against Tesco’s proposals – but what only became clear after the campaign was launched was that we ALSO had a united town with incredibly dedicated individuals and businesses prepared to put their time and energy behind a campaign to maintain the VIABILITY of our very special, historic market town – coupled with 11,324 people prepared to put their names behind us.

Our message to other towns? Don’t be afraid to leap.

A massive THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us from the start.
