New Supermarket Proposal for Honley/Brockholes

Hot on the heels of Tesco’s and Lidl’s plans for Holmfirth, a new supermarket option for the Holme Valley has been revealed.

This new proposal is to redevelop part of the Hope Bank Works site on New Mill Road A61 between Honley and Brockholes. It’s currently the home to Replan UK and has a vacant field next to it. Booths, Morrison’s and Waitrose have been approached by the Huddersfield architect and Honley based businessman behind the plans.

The proposed store would offer around 300 new jobs and would enable the existing principal site occupier, Replan (UK) Ltd, to relocate to more suitable premises to be built nearby. The scheme plans to create a large landscaped leisure area with water features and a restaurant/function room set on the site of the former “Hope Bank Pleasure Grounds”.

The scheme is work in progress and a public exhibition to showcase the proposals, answer questions and listen to feedback from the public is to be held on the dates below. These views will be considered prior to the planning application and will help to shape the final proposals.

The public showcase will take place on:-

Friday 22nd June 2012 – 4.30pm – 8.30pm
Monday 25th June 2012 – 4.30pm – 8.30pm
Venue – Honley Village Hall, Honley, Holmfirth
