As a local business, we received a letter from Dransfield Properties on Wednesday 13 February, giving notice of a supermarket consultation this Friday for the Colne Mills site, where Spectrum Yarns was based. 

There are two events, which our members and supporters may wish to engage with:

Friday 22 February

Dransfield Properties Ltd are holding a consultation event for the public to view their plans for the erection of a supermarket on the site of Colne Mills, Britannia Road (behind Ashby’s). The public will be able to view these plans and speak to the development team at Slaithwaite Civic Hall from 12noon to 7pm on Friday 22 February 2013.

Monday 25 February

The Renaissance Group, together with Totally Locally, organisations with interests in the sustainability of the village, are planning to meet at the Watershed, Bridge Street, Slaithwaite on Monday 25 February at 7pm to discuss the implications of the Dransfield proposals. Please come along to share your views and hear those of others.

Please feel free to forward this information to your own networks/contacts and to put on Facebook etc. Please leave a message here on our website or on our Facebook page, as well as actively contributing to the events. Alternatively you can pass your thoughts to us in writing by placing your comments in our collecting box in the shop.
