Meeting in ‘Tesco Town’ row

CAMPAIGNERS fighting plans by Tesco for a major development in Glasgow’s West End are to hold a public meeting.

The protest group Stop Tesco Owning Partick (Stop) is hoping for a large turnout at the meeting in Partick Burgh Hall on April 16.

A spokesman said the meeting would give feedback on the progress of the group’s efforts. Speakers representing both sides of the row have been invited to address the meeting.


The plan for a supermarket, flats, houses and a car park near the foot of Byres Road sparked outrage when it was lodged last year.

One campaigner, Andy Watson, launched an online petition calling on Tony Blair to stop the development, branded Tesco Town’.

A petition with several hundred names has also been given to Glasgow City Council.
