Newquay Tretherras school is on the verge of selling its dilapidated junior side to Tesco, which incorporates the greenfield land at the top of Glamis Road, the Hexagon Theatre and Happy Days Nursery. Some residents living near Tretherras are angry the deal looks to be done and dusted without them being consulted.
In October 2012 Tesco finally commented on the proposals in a joint statement, claiming that they were “excited” about the potential deal.
A campaign group RAID (Residents Against Inappropriate Development) was set up to fight the plans. They have held a number of awareness raising events.
