27th July 2010 - On 22nd July 2010 Kettering Borough Councillors voted 4 to 3 to turn down the planning application for the Sainsburys store on the Great Bear Site.
Public opinion was in favour of the store on the proposed site. The store could create 200 jobs for local people. The Lawrence site is run down, but proves not to be big enough for a decent supermarket with a petrol station.
If you believe that the Kettering Councillors have let the residents of Desborough down by once again not listening to us, then we would welcome you to sign this online petition and ask friends and family in agreement to do the same.
Please see the blog to view articles from the E.T and proposed plans from the Sainsbury's website.
The petition can be shared with Kettering Borough Council and Sainsburys - lets hope they appeal the decision.
