Knaresborough High Street - who is it for?

Meeting about trucks unloading in Knaresborough High St last Monday: main issue is the expectation that the town must dance to the tune of huge corporations.  Residents living above shops have to put up with unloading noise very early in mornings.. lack of flexibility on part of mega corps.  Old political parties don't question this power imbalance as they believe we have to keep going along the outdated 'growth for corporations' path (TTIP etc).  Greens question the  underlying paradigm so all our policy  takes us in a very different direction from the old political model..
