Signature information

We SUPPORT the proposed Sainsbury's Horfield redevelopment (Ref: 12/02090/F) on the site of the Memorial Stadium.

This development will give the local economy a tremendous boost. It will provide job prospects for the locality and incorporate a housing development which in part will be affordable to first-time buyers.

It will provide much needed competition with other supermarkets of a similar size in the area, giving the local customer a real choice.

The new store will be of great convenience to the large surrounding population. It will be within easy walking distance, served with good bus links and will enable supermarket shoppers who live within the local vicinity the choice of making a shorter car journey.

Customers will also be able to make use of the two hours car parking at the proposed Sainsbury’s redevelopment, to visit the local shops in the Gloucester Road area, leaving the resident on street parking situation in a more favourably free position.

We welcome the inclusion of a community centre facility for local people and the new Memorial Square open space.

Please grant planning permission for this Sainsbury’s Horfield redevelopment.

Background information

I view this proposed redevelopment as a great opportunity to regenerate this site. This will also help the local economy and housing situation. As the current owners Bristol Rovers FC have gained planning permission for a move to a new stadium at the UWE, this enabling redevelopment will replace the Memorial Stadium with something that will be of benefit to all of the local community. This petition is needed so people can show support for the proposed redevelopment by Sainsbury's and request Bristol City Council to grant planning permission for 12/02090/F

In addition to signing this petition please register your Support to the planning application at the Planning Application link on the right.
