the No Mill Road Tesco Campaign » TESCO LOSE PLANNING APPEAL:

Fantastic news and well done to everyone involved in stopping this from happening 😉

For those who don’t know, Mill Road is the place to go in Cambridge when you want the little things. It’s the home of small interesting shops, multi-nationality small supermarkets where you can buy hundreds of things that you’ve probably never seen or heard of before, plus, all the roads off it (well most) and full of Victorian terrace houses.

It’s got an village like atmosphere and, as the about page of the campaign site says ‘Mill Road is the creative and cultural heart of Cambridge’.

What twonk decided that it would be a good idea to stick a branch of Tesco right in the middle of it?? Admitidly we are a bit short on big supermarkets in Cambridge.  There are only 5 Tescos, 2 Sainsburys and an Aldi … how could we possibly cope without another one???
