Sainsbury’s say, in the letter they sent around in December;
“If you have any questions about our plans please contact Roz Henville from our community relations team email@example.com”
Ask Ms. Henville difficult questions.

Think about what they say. Ask them to prove they will provide new jobs. Ask them if they’ve ever done a study on jobs lost. Ask them how much profit does a Sainsbury’s local have to make in order to survive. Analyse the letter, spend some time over a coffee with a friend or two. Don’t believe anything they say and ask them to prove everything. Enjoy.
More recently Hebden Royd Town Council have written to Sainsbury’s asking them to initiate a public consultation exercise. This has been ignored – Sainsbury’s have applied for planning permission without any consultation first, so they appear to have no respect for our council and contempt for us, the public – they are just going to build whether we like it or not. Maybe you’d like to ask them about this?
Please send us a copy of both your letter and any further correspondence so we can collect the details and pass on your good ideas. Use our contact form to start the conversation with us (this avoids spam).
You could also write to the chief executive (ie the big boss) – Justin King – firstname.lastname@example.org
or use the address; Justin King, C.E.O, Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd., 30 Holborn, London, EC1N 2HT
Don’t forget though, that objecting to the planning permission application is the most important thing you can do.
