Give people the power to decide whether supermarkets get planning permission

The country’s 8,000 supermarket outlets account for over 97% of total grocery sales, with store numbers having grown by 35 per cent in the last 10 years, while pretty much every other store category has fallen.

Independent retailers need protecting. We want the government to give the decision on all future supermarket developments to the people who live in the community where they are proposed, instead of the decisions being taken by local or national politicians. We want a 'supermarket vote’.
