Commenting on Tesco’s decision to abandon expansion plans for its store in Milngavie Jo said :
“Congratulations to everyone who fought hard for this fantastic result, it is a real triumph for local community activism.
“I’m delighted that Tesco listened to the community’s concerns and made the right decision.
“Their proposed store expansion would have had a detrimental effect on the character of the Milngavie precinct and the independent shops just a short distance away.
“We now have a decision we can be happy with thanks to the hard work of local groups like We Like Milngavie, Milngavie Community Council and the hundreds of people in the community who’ve spoken out against the plans for the past 4 years.”
