Civic Voice responds to comments from Sir Terry Leahy about decline of the High Street

"Responding to former Tesco boss Sir Terry Leahy who has described the rise of supermarkets and the closure of small shops as 'part of progress', Civic Voice Chair, Paula Ridley, said:
“Our collective sense of community and well-being is intimately connected to the health of our high streets, which play an important social role in bringing people together.

The rise of supermarkets, with the infrastructure needed to sustain them, and their purchasing power has helped to crowd out competition. As a result, small independent shops are increasingly missing from the high street. This is not progress, but it is change."
