RESIDENTS HAVE THEIR SAY

Posted on July 12, 2008. Filed under: News, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

The public consulutation we held on Saturday 12th July was a great success, with lots of people coming to find out what we are doing, object to Tesco and offer their suggestions for a better Stirchley. To see the results click here.

One point that seemed to keep coming up was a presumption that the Tesco’s development is a done deal. It most certainly is not! Birmingham City Council may be minded to approve the application but it still has to go to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Hazel Blears). We have to act quickly but there’s still time to make your objections known.

We’ll be letting you know how to do this soon.

In the meantime, scroll down to see more pictures from the event.

It was a very positive day, with many and varied suggestions for what the Stirchley Community residents would like to support it needs and make it a place for others to visit.
I was really sad to hear the few people who were desperate for Tesco as they have (it seems clear to me)been brainwashed in to believing that this is the ONLY option for Stirchley. The poor people are so desperate for change now, as the area has been allowed (deliberately?) to degenerate that they are willing to accept anything now.
I hope that we managed to open some more eyes to what we could have instead. I am very excited now about converting these ideas in to some alternative options for the area!

I agree Liam

I don’t think the area has deliberately been allowed to decline but years of wrangling over Tesco has stopped anything else from happening. Now it seems like the only option. Ironic isn’t it? Tesco exacerbate the problem and then present themselves as the solution.

The corporate Tesco monster rolls into another town and demolishes another chain of long-standing independent retailers. I’m sick of this, quite frankly. No doubt a brown envelope with cash and some ‘let’s rebuild your community centre’ thinly-veiled bribes have secured the planning application with the council.

How to regenerate a town without spending any of the tax payers money, a guide to getting ahead by Sir Terry Leahy.

Pah. No-one’s mentioning the effect that this will have on a truly ethical retailer i.e. Midlands Co-op Society who have been in the town for over 100 years. You might pay a little less for Tesco goods, only because some blind Chinese orphan is producing them in terrible conditions.

Get Tesco out now.

Hi! I was surfing and found your blog post… nice! I love your blog. 🙂 Cheers! Sandra. R.
