Petition Calderdale Planning Committee to refuse supermarket retail impact assessment and planning application

Please consider signing Incredible Edible Mytholm’s petition (Scroll down the page a bit to find it.) The petition calls on Calderdale Planning Committee to refuse a developer’s retail impact assessment statement, about the effects on the town of a hypothetical supermarket, and the related supermarket and hotel planning application.

The retail impact assessment statement makes it clear that no supermarket is associated with the planning application or is interested in locating on the site on King St, Hebden Bridge. So this is a speculative planning application aimed at whacking up the sale price of the site. It’s not aimed at creating a handy alternative to the Coop for Hebden’s discontented shoppers.

Incredible Edible Mytholm’s response to FAQs about the Petition is here .

Planning Officer recommends approving the retail impact statement and supermarket and hotel planning application. So does Cllr Battye.

On the 3rd December, Calderdale Planning Committee will consider the developer’s retail impact assessment statement about the effects on the town of an imaginary supermarket. Are we in lala land? The Planning Officer recommends that the Planning Committee should accept the retail impact assessment statement, and the supermarket and hotel planning application. Here’s the relevant Council webpage. (And this is the doc you need to download to read the Planning Officer’s recommendation: Planning Applications List [PDF Document 525KB] )

If it approves the retail impact assessment statement, the Planning Committee will also approve the speculative planning application for a supermarket and hotel on the site.
