Attack of the Clones 20/02/07

Activists from the National Liberal Party, the third way are in the forefront of campaigns to resist turning their areas into ‘clone towns’. We don’t want many independent businesses to disappear or be replaced with big high street names. We support small businesses and are concerned about the impact of supermarket expansion. In Cuffley, Third Way Cllr Brent Cheetham is spearheading a campaign against a Tesco development in the Village.

An online Petition against the store development has now topped two thousand and we can predict us reaching the 2500 mark, Brent Cheetham Chairman of Save Cuffley Village has thanked Councillor Mark Mills-Bishop support by signing the on line petition and making the following comment:-

“I am a Borough Councillor representing Goffs Oak on Broxbourne borough council, Tesco opened similar premises in Hammond street Goffs oak, my ward constituents have a list of complaints the village post office already combating reductions in post office services cannot compete with Tesco, and now shuts two afternoons a week, good luck”.

All this is in stark contrast to the councillors on Northaw and Cuffley Council, who have remained curiously silent on the issue.

Over in Hrnchurch, Essex NLP/3W activists are campaigning against the expansion of Sainsbury’s. Well over 300 locals have written in support. Graham Williamson told us:- “We support small traders – they are part of what makes a community, a community”
