Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Sample campaign materials

If you are producing written and visual materials for your campaign, or objecting to a planning application in writing, you may find it useful to refer to a selection of campaign materials from other campaigns listed at the bottom of this page.

Many campaigns have submitted objection letters to the local authority, or other bodies involved in the decision process. It may be useful for you to see some of the letters written by other campaigners. However, please bear in mind that objection letters should concentrate as far as possible on local circumstances and planning guidance.

Please see examples in the associated files section at the end of this page.
