Local shopkeepers had been vocal in their opposition to what their perceived as a direct threat to their livelihoods. The Guardian Cardiff reports that;

Councillors have voted against an application from Sainsbury’s to build a new store on the site of the old Carpenters Arms pub in Llanrumney.

All councillors on today’s planning committee except one voted for a motion to defer the application for refusal on the grounds the new store would exacerbate problems with congestion and traffic, posing a danger to the public.”
