[QUOTE=Guest][QUOTE=Guest]What is it with this forum and supermarkets, come on move on, and now it's Marple turn. Who cares it's not Hazel Grove.[/QUOTE]
there's nothing wrong with having a social conscience just because S.M.B.C stuffed hazel grove with a lack care over planning and allowing supermarkets to do as they like doesn't mean we should stand by and allow the same thing happen to Marple.[/QUOTE]

Yes youíre right Guest, and on one hand I have to agree with you that it sometimes seems that little can be done to stop these big companies from pushing their way into small communities and turning them into ugly shopping complexes, which unfortunately has happened to Hazel Grove.

Iíve not yet seen one superstore that actually improves the landscape, just the opposite, there big, brash and ugly, which is such a shame as with a little thoughtful planning the picture could look so different.

I think this is the biggest reason why local residents fear and so strongly object to a supermarket being built where they live, because they know that the circus will be coming to (their) town......with all its bangs, whistles and 20% off banners flying everywhere, and that what was once a small community will be changed and lost forever.

As for our social conscience Guest, I do feel strongly for your plight, and which you every success, but I also feel that your social conscience ended at your front doorstep, as you and your neighbours are more than happy to get into your cars and shop at a safe distant away, clogging up Hazel Grove and its surrounding streets, so where is your social conscience being shown then.
