Mayor of Totnes

A meeting with Mayor of Totnes, Pruw Boswell-Harper to discuss the disappointing decision to allow Costa to come to Totnes despite over 5700 people, mostly local, signing the petition to ask them to stay away. Whilst understanding the concern of SHDC that rejection could result in an expensive appeal, it remains my view and that of the Town Council, that Totnes' strong tradition of independents could be undermined by inappropriate and unnecessary chain outlets. Job displacement seems more likely than job creation.
