Billybob Penn and his letter to Braintree Council

First published in News

A schoolboy has penned a letter to councillors listing his concerns about a new Tesco.

Billybob Penn, 12, is one of more than 200 people who have objected to the retailer’s plans for a supermarket off Halstead High Street.

Greenfields Community Housing, which owns Symonds Court sheltered housing complex in St Andrew’s Road, one of two access roads to Tesco, has also objected to the plans.

Daniel Allen, director of property services, asked for confirmation the supermarket development will not have an adverse impact on existing and future tenants.

Well done Billybob, there is always a need for anti-Tesco campaigners.
But the Gazette ought to tell us what his reasons for objection were.

I think the idea is your supposed to buy the paper, or was it not in the paper either?
