We hope that the information on this website will help others protect their local trade, industry, environment and communities from the money-fuelled onslaught of the supermarkets. We thank the other people running brilliant and informative websites (linked to and referenced in our site) for providing us with the facts and figures to help inform our town of the truth in economic terms about the devastation supermarket trade brings to an area.

Despite all our best efforts and the overwhelming support that the campaign has experienced… despite Hebden Royd Town Council AND Calderdale Borough Council both rejecting he supermarket’s plan… without public consultation, a retail impact analysis or any understanding of our unique town… Sainsbury’s have lodged an appeal and are going to fight us all so they can build their unwanted store in the heart of our community.
But they haven’t beaten us yet and we’re not going to make it easy for them.
If you’ve objected before you have the opportunity to object again – and if you missed out before, please make the effort this time
The appeal process is entirely a paper exercise, there’s no public meeting or consultation. Only objections in writing will be accepted.
The only way to object is in writing OR via an online process – please follow this link and we’ll guide you through it.
