AN opportunity missed, with employment at its highest for years and no sign of a significant recovery, how can local councillors and Calderdale councillors deny Todmorden a Sainsbury’s?
It is 150 jobs denied to people in the local area, and as the recent poll suggested almost 80 per cent of locals in favour!
I cannot help thinking how long we are going to be left with this eyesore (one of many in the town), and what bright ideas they will come up with next.
I suppose like a lot of local folk, I will have to continue shopping out of town.
Sainsbury’s will more than likely appeal against this negative attitude, and hopefully common sense will prevail.
