There are still a number of pubs in the village, and a growing number of café's with another opening soon, okay it will impact on the other food shops in the village, but there are 3 co-ops in Westbury so why not a Tesco Express? At least we didn't get the big Sainsburys a few years ago, and the key to the supermarket is just don't use it, like the Stokes Croft store it is well used even after all the protests so they will keep opening more stores.
It is just an awful location for a supermarket. No room for their shoppers to park.. A narrow very congested street..
But there may be limited means to object - Tesco has adopted the policy of up gobbling up pubs recently because the planning laws make it easy to do so. Practically the only means now to stop them given they got permission for their coolers and condensers is when they apply to change the fascia as I think they may have to. Anyway, do we need another supermarket? It is just another move to turning the village into yet another identikit high street in the service of the great god Tesco. . The other pubs and cafes are all doing okay. The Foresters could, were it properly run.
