Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Blackstock Road, Finsbury Park

For two years, Sainsbury's has been battling to open another “Local” store at the old Highbury Vale Police Station – just a couple of hundred yards from the branch on the Hackney side of the road, near Finsbury Park.

In February 2017, Islington Council denied its planning application. The planning committee said it would “adversely impact the vibrancy of Finsbury Park town centre”, adding delivery lorries would cause congestion in Blackstock Road.

Sainsbury's appealed and the Planning Inspectorate hearing will take place on a date to be confirmed.
