Copy of Letter Sent Today to Sainsbury’s CEO Mike Coupe

At the Quarterly meeting last night Sid Jackson promised to send a letter outlining our objection and frustration with Sainsbury’s intention to launch a Judicial Review again the ARLA development which will include an ASDA supermarket.

This he has done.

The letter can be found here:  Sainsburys letter January 2015

We encourage residents to write letters of objection to Sainsbury’s to let them know their feelings.  Would love to know your feelings on this on our Facebook page.

ARLA South Ruislip Retail Development

One key issue for us in South Ruislip at the moment is the building on the ARLA site.  The majority of the residents, local councillors and the committee of the SRRA are in favour of the new shopping facilities and housing being built.  There are plans for a new supermarket, ASDA, a cinema, housing and family restaurants.

Those against speak in particular of the concerns with traffic.  Our argument is that there will be more traffic anyway and counter peak traffic won’t be as detrimental as traffic at peaks such as if the site was all housing.  Besides we like the idea of competition with Sainsburys.  If you have a point of view on this issue you are always welcome to leave a comment below or attend the planning meeting when it takes place or write to your councillors with your viewpoint.

The consultation process has finished now, but details of the plan can be found here on Hillingdon’s planning portal.

A decision is due by 05/08/2014, but often they take longer subject to the timing of the next available major planning committee meeting.
