Bradie S started this petition to South Gloucestershire council

An application has been submitted for planning permission to grant a building to house a local supermarket style shop in the car park of the Billy pub in Warmley. 

The local shops in the area will be severely affected by this, these local shops have been serving the community for 10+ years. There are a variety of different local family run shops in the area and it is a great concern for them to learn of this planning application. These shops also have been serving the community all throughout Covid putting themselves at risk. 

This new supermarket will be a small local shop so the same as the small family run shops, just with a big brand name. They will bring nothing new to the area and leave the area’s longest serving shops in great financial difficulty, possibly resulting in closure. Warmley is a village and these small businesses are what brings the community together.

In addition, the new shop will cause extra traffic at the junction from Cadbury Heath road to Tower road south. This is already a dangerous and built up spot therefore to add a blind spot in the same place by building a shop wouldn’t make sense and will be very dangerous. 

This is a call out for our community to stand together in solidarity, to save our local shops and shopkeepers and show our support and gratitude to our shopkeepers who have served and continue to serve us. It may be hard as the big companies have lots of money and great legal teams to push things through but we will fight to save our local businesses! Please support by signing this petition and sparing 2 minutes to object to the application on the councils planning application website:

Postcode for the proposed build is BS30 8BL. Thank you.

South Gloucestershire: Granting planning permission will be detrimental to so many business owners in the area. It is families incomes and shops that have served for decades. An additional shop is not needed.
