Campaigning to curb supermarket power

Silsden, West Yorkshire

Almost 800 people have signed a petition objecting to plans to build a supermarket on the former Becks Mill site in Silsden. 

Development company Silvermantle had originally applied for planning permission for the Becks Mill site with the intention that it would become a Tesco. Tesco pulled out in December 2014 but Silvermantle continued with its application, which is expected to be discussed by Bradford Council planners on January 29th 2015.

Plans refused

The plan was turned down because of the adverse effect on the vitality of the town centre. The report specifically said the supermarket would have a major effect on the Co-op and the retail in the town centre.
