Sainsbury’s Local is coming to town

At the 8th January 2014 Hebden Royd Town Council meeting, Councillors will discuss  proposals to build a Sainsbury’s Local store on the car park on Valley Road, where the Hebden Bridge Fire Station used to be.

Here are contact details for councillors, in case anyone wants to get in touch with their ward councillor.

Yesterday, the 5th December, Sainsbury’s Supermarkets notified Hebden Royd Town Council of their plan.

Sainsbury’s letter to the Council states that the site owner, Eshton Gregory Ltd,  is to submit proposals to Calderdale Council for the new store, with a sales area of around 2,750 sq feet including a cash machine. The store, intended as a “top up” shop for local people, would be open every day from 7am-11pm and would apply for a licence to sell alcohol.

Roz Henville, a Sainsbury’s community relations team member, is willing to answer questions about the plan by phone (0800 319 6162),  email ( or at a meeting.
