Yesterday evening Keith presented a petition to the House of Commons on the disruption caused by the Sainsbury’s development in Rushey Mead.

The Government will now have to respond to the petition.

The text of the petition reads:

The Petition of residents of Leicester East,

Declares that the development plans by Sainsbury’s in Rushey Mead are having a negative impact on the daily lives of the Petitioners’ families.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Department for Communities and Local Government to introduce legislation relating to major retail developments to allow local people to have a say on how the work is carried out and so that potential noise and traffic problems are considered and to provide compensation.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
