Just a quick post. I’m working on a longer book review. Totnes has seen off Costa Coffee. Costa got “Change of use” but decided not to go ahead with opening a Coffee outlet in the town. Totnes has 41 independent Coffee shops and people were rightly concerned about the impact on these small retailers. Living in a country where increasingly
“The skin around every city looks the same
Miles of flat neon spelling well-known names”
its nice the homogenisation of the high street has been in a tiny way halted. In addition the Transition town movement were at the heart of the fight to stop the new outlet. Well done.
