Rival groups SNAS (Shipston Needs a Supermarket and Petrol Station) was set up to oppose Shipston’s Heart Alive! Campaign (SHA!C) formed to keep Shipston’s town centre thriving.

- Shipston Town Council voted to retain its opposition to ASL development at their meeting on Monday on the Deputy Mayor's casting vote after a 6-6 tie.
