Tesco grinds down city's planners on Unthank Road development

Tesco is celebrating after gaining planning permission for its controversial Unthank Road site after 5 years of wrangling and appeals. Never mind the years of passionate opposition by local residents and the likely traffic chaos that will ensue (just see the daily nightmare on the Fiveways Roundabout and the Tesco Metro at Earlham). Pressure will be on the established businesses in the area as well. Not true sustainability, just sustaining Tesco profits at the expense of others. A sorry day for Norwich and local democracy. :-(
