1,300 households to be asked if they want Tesco

A QUESTIONNAIRE on Tesco’s plans to open a shop in Goring will be sent to every home in the village.

The Goring Gap Business Network, which is conducting the survey, says it wants an accurate snapshot of public opinion on the scheme.

The form will be posted to all 1,300 households in Goring this weekend with Goring Gap News.

The seven multiple-choice questions cover residents’ current local shopping habits and whether they support Tesco’s plans for an Express store at the former Queen’s Arms pub in Reading Road.

Since Tesco announced its plans in December, more than 1,800 people have signed petition urging it to rethink. The petition was organised by Stop Tesco in Goring, a residents’ protest group, which says the store would threaten Goring’s independent traders by drawing shoppers away from the high street.
