Lots of coverage of Saxmundham

Following the CPRE report into the success of Saxmundham since they saw off a Tesco store eight years ago there has been lots more coverage in the national and local press. The Norwich Evening News expands it to cover Hethersett which sees a Tesco Express arrrive in 5 weeks.
The Telegraph highlights the difference between Saxmundham and Stalham where both the Co-Op and Somerfield rapidly closed and the independent food shops are now struggling to survive.
The benefits of more local producers have been huge for the landscape, tourism and villages that have been kept alive, says the CPRE report. Once the local shops close then there is no demand for the banks or other local services and the area declines. Which outcome do we want for Sheringham?
