People start buying houses in Mill Road rather than renting them. Most recently, activism has been concerned with preserving the local environment, and particularly with opposing the chain stores that have started to move in among the independent retailers. Though the store eventually opened, he gained more than five per cent of votes cast and a great deal of publicity for the cause. People from all walks of life make up Mill Road, town and gown: workers, students, professors and people working for organisations like the Medical Research Council or AstraZeneca.
