We don't need it

I CANNOT understand why Peel Group go against the feelings of the community – Peel Holdings for the supermarket on Neary Way and Peel Energy for the Biomass Incinerator.
Mark Prisk, a Conservative minister, says on his website: “A Conservative Government would make Local Plans, truly local. This means involving people and local neighbourhoods in creating the priorities for their Local Plan. It also means that we will abolish the power of planning inspectors to rewrite Local Plans.”
So why has the government inspector given permission for the supermarket? For the inspector to say that a new store would not be a threat to the town centres seems a nonsense.
I wonder if he visited Urmston and Stretford and saw the empty shops; some in the Urmston Phase 1 Development have not been occupied since they were built.
How many more stores do we need?
There will be an Aldi, Quality Save and Iceland in Phase 2.
There is only a limited amount of money around to spend.
