It looks as if Tesco are getting set to open…

The hoardings are going up… There will be a response to this…

Also, the injustice visited on Stokes Croft through the planning process means that if the outrage perpetrated in Stokes Croft is not to be repeated everywhere, we must change the planning process, we must BOYCOTT the likes of Tesco, and we must work on alternatives…

YOU can help stop Tesco NOW!

Tesco have recently submitted their final applications to Bristol City Council for permission to open in Stokes Croft. You have until 12 November (this Friday!) to formally object to Tesco.

What you need to do:

1. Send your objection to Tesco’s applications by 12 November

Email: (CC: so we have a copy) or write to: Nigel Butler, Development Management, City Development, Bristol City Council, Brunel House, St, George’s Road, Bristol BS1 5UY.

We’ve created a template letter help you raise issues that will be taken seriously by the Council. Only Planning issues (rather than concerns with Tesco generally) can be considered by the Council so it’s important to link your objections to these. Please use this TEMPLATE LETTER – you can cut and paste it into word document and add your own comments – personalised letters will be significantly more effective.

2. Put Wed 8 December, 2pm in your diary to attend the meeting at Council House – our community will continue to stand united.

3. Spread the word to all your friends and neighbours. The more people that object, the more likely we will stop Tesco.
