Marina ‘find out more’ dates

HAVING established an undoubted talking point around Todmorden over the last few weeks, Todmorden Pride board is giving the chance for people to find out more about the marina scheme.

The plans, produced by Todmorden Pride member Ivor Dibble as an alternative to a Sainsbury’s supermarket at the Halifax Road gateway site, have sparked debate around town ever since, with letters and emails sent to the Todmorden News published in this issue and more to be included next week.

Sainsbury’s have applied for planning permission to develop the site, with a revised design application now working its way through the planning process.

To explain more to anyone interested about the marina alternative, Todmorden Pride members will be manning a display at Todmorden Library, Rochdale Road, this Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25, from 10am.

Todmorden Pride chairman James Gregory said: “Todmorden Pride members will be on hand to explain any queries about the scheme and will happily discuss any issues of concern about Todmorden’s physical regeneration generally.”
