An interesting decision! Whilst i beleive the decision should be applauded i have two comments.

When you read the whole story it appears a councillor from stalham decided to rule against Tesco and then had to find a reason from the rule book. Grounds for a Tesco appeal?

Secondly and i think more interestingly Rupert is this point. You have supported Unitary Norwich on the basis of local democracy so what are you thoughts on a Stalham councillor being involved in a decision regarding Sheringham. I mean She's fine as she can pop down the local Tesco in Stalham for her cheap shopping if she so wishes but appears to want to deny this choice to people in Sheringham. I do realise that the other option includes a Waitrose but as everyone nows Waitrose is more expensive that Tesco.

Also while i have your attention any thoughts on the Lords comments about unitary?

Finally I hope you partner is enjoying her new job, is she commuting everyday?

Gav - Hurrah for Lord Uxbridge.

Like we need another Tesco. Perhaps you could stop all those horrible mini-Tesco stores that are popping up all around Norwich : )

They can, however, buy much the same stuff but at a higher price from the Waitrose that will be built instead.

Gavin; I don't think that there is much of a case for a unitary Sheringham! It's a little too little...

Anyway: Most Sheringham people are against the Tesco. That's why it keeps getting voted down.

Rupert..my point is that shouldn't councillors representing sheringham and its immeadiate surrounds make this decision not someone from another town. It would be interesting to know where the stalham councillor does her weekly shop!

Rupert.. i wasn't making a case for sheringham unitary. I don't beleive in Unitary as you know.


One just wonders how much this correct decision badly put together is going to cost the council tax payers of North Norfolk.

Well, if 'most' Sheringham people are against a TESCO, then it will not be a viable operation and will soon close. That's the trouble with democracy - it spawns bad taste.

How come your partner now works for the economist? Not very green, left or right on? Probably pays well though. Oh, I see.
