Not another supermarket
Today I joined local residents and other Labour colleagues at the Golden Key pub in Woodbridge Road, Ipswich.
Not in the pub for a lunchtime drink or a Sunday campaigning session but to join residents in protesting against the plan to turn the Golden Key pub into yet another supermarket. Rumours abound that Tesco are the supermarket chain who wish to buy the site from Greene King.
If you wish to know more about the planning application visit the Ipswich Borough Council website here and the application reference is 11/00740/FUL
Time is running out and submissions have to be in by the 17th October (tomorrow)
Cllr Alasdair Ross, speaking to residents
But this is only the start of our campaign to stop this development. we are not just against supermarkets or Tesco, but we are fortunate in Rushmere, Bixley and St John's that we have such a variety of small shops in our wards. This development could see the end of our little row of shops on Woodbridge Road
