Tesco News Spring 08
The Chorlton Tesco planning application has been referred to an 'informal hearing', which will take place sometime in the early summer (date TBC).
Sadly we have to discourage people from attending the hearing, as any evidence suggesting that this is contentious case will give the Planning Inspector grounds to move the appeal up to to a public inquiry, which we absolutely do not want to happen (it would put us up against Tesco's crack squad of appeal witnesses and expensive QC's). Vocal community opposition has been absolutely instrumental in getting us this far, but ironically may seriously hinder the campaign at this stage.
Unfortunately, we'd also discourage people from writing letters if they have not already done so (again with regards to avoiding a Planning Inquiry). Any letters already received by the council will in any case be submitted automatically as part of the report to the Inspector. firstname.lastname@example.org.
