We all know full well the extent of the traffic problem on the Bedford Rd/Bursland Junction outside Tesco Express, we also know the main cause of this is the delivery vehicles using the road as a loading bay.
Outside Tesco Express is a parking bay designed for cars to park for a short period of time, Tesco Express uses this when it is free from obstruction however when it is not free from obstruction or they have more than one delivery at a time they use the Road only a few yards from the junction and Bus stop causing serious and dangerous traffic conditions.
Tesco then unload there vehicles heavy goods cages in through the main store often at peak times such as morning rush and afternoon school runs.

The killing of animals is a shame but as the slaughter of animals is necessary to feed the many millions of meat eaters living in Great Britain it is vital that these animals are slaughtered in the most humane (Painless) way possible.
In a FSA approved slaughter house all animals are stunned prior to slaughter so the animal feels no pain or suffering at all.
But in a FSA exempt slaughter houses I.e Halal slaughter houses animal are not stunned prior to slaughter. Slaughter is carried out with a single cut to the throat, rather than the more widespread method of stunning with a bolt into the head before slaughter. Under Islamic law, an animal must be slaughtered by having its throat cut while it is conscious. The person carrying out the killing has to recite an Arabic verse at the time. Campaign group the Christian Institute, said: ‘The idea of having Islamic ritual said over meat would be objectionable to some Christians. I would find it objectionable, so it should be labelled as Halal.’
The Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC), which advises the government on how to avoid cruelty to livestock, says the way Halal meat is produced causes severe suffering to animals. They say “cattle can take up to two minutes to bleed to death - amounting to severe pain and distress to the animals”.
The RSPCA believes that religious beliefs and practise should be respected but also believe that animals should only be slaughtered under the most humane conditions.
Halal food is everywhere. According to recent news reports, it is being "secretly" snuck into your sandwich or fed to your child in their school dinner. It's also found in hospital canteens, pubs, sporting venues and most fast food out lets.
Britain's biggest supermarket chains are selling Halal lamb and chicken without telling unsuspecting shoppers. Those stocking meat slaughtered according to Islamic law include Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Somerfield and the Co-op. But the UK’s second-biggest supermarket, Asda, has refused to confirm or deny whether it sells Halal meat.
Most lamb imported from New Zealand by British supermarkets has been slaughtered according to Islamic law, but this is not mentioned on packaging. Some lamb from British abattoirs is also Halal.
The country’s biggest hotel and restaurant group, Whitbread– which owns the Beefeater and Brewers Fayre chains – was also selling Halal food, as were well-known sporting venues such as Ascot, Twicken¬ham and Wembley.
The Jewish faith have a similar slaughter method call Shechita but there are no Shechita slaughter houses in the UK. Members of the Jewish faith respect our laws and import their own Shechita meat to be sold only in registered Jewish supermarkets.
Why is it that a blind eye is being turned to the Halal labelling of food? Because it is politically correct not to say anything about it incase it offends the Islamic community within Britain?
Sorry but that is wrong. Halal products and outlets must be labelled so that the general public can have a choice. Why force it upon people. Why can it not be treated the same as Shechita meat! Well labelled and sold only in Jewish shops! If followers of Islam want Halal meat why can they not do the same as Members of the Jewish faith?
PLEASE SIGN IF YOU WANT YOUR MEAT LABELLED!
Here are some of the reasons why we don’t need a new supermarket:
Building a new Tesco supermarket on the edge of Glastonbury will not create employment or support the local economy, because of the negative impact it will have on local small businesses and the jobs supported by them. Independent studies show that for every 20 jobs Tesco creates, 30 are destroyed in the local area, mostly at smaller traders and their suppliers. We’d like to see a business on the site that offers real skills – not one that’s about stacking shelves and manning tills.
Glastonbury is a thriving, bustling town with a unique character. The many independent shops and outdoor markets are of interest to residents and tourists alike. Likewise, Street has a lively town centre. If people are drawn away from the town centres to shop at Tesco, this will reduce the normal ‘footfall’ levels which keep the High Streets alive. Shepton Mallet town centre has experienced many shop closures and job losses since Tesco arrived there and we do not want that to happen here.
Supermarkets encourage people to use their cars. This will increase noise and pollution levels and make this town less desirable to live in, for children to play in and, importantly for the local economy, less desirable to tourists.
Tesco also has a questionable track record on ethical behaviour.
Glastonbury is known around the world as a vibrant and ethically-based community. Let’s keep it that way - and help our local businesses too. Say no to Tesco in Glastonbury!

We are a group opposing two planning applications one by Sainsbury's and one by Tesco's to build out of town superstores in our market town, which has a population of 19,000 approximately. We believe that these stores will destroy our historic market town centre laying waste to hundreds of years of heritage within our town centre area.
An independent survey by The National Retail Forum shows that 93 individual superstore opening led to nett job losses of 25,000. This equates to 276 per store. If these two stores are built and these statistics are replicated Leek will lose 552 jobs nett.
