Tesco planning battle rages

Retail giants, Tesco, which lost an Appeal Court battle in May to develop a superstore at Witney is to fight on. The company has been given leave by the House of Lords to challenge an Appeal Court decision. This was that a High Court judge who gave the green-light for plans to develop a superstore at Witney, was wrong. The Appeal Court upheld refusal of consent for the development by the environment secretary.
