Supermarket plan for HOP replacement

Developers plan to merge the two units at the centre of this parade

Developers are proposing to merge two empty shop units from the Honor Oak Park parade to create a single unit that could accommodate a small supermarket. Formerly, the units were occupied by Indo Bangla and the Honor Oak Tandoori.

The news follows speculation on the Honor Oak forum that the site had been targeted by a supermarket chain.

An application has been submitted for:
The part demolition, alterations and conversion of the ground floor shop units to form one retail unit (Use Class A1) at 57-59 Honor Oak Park SE23, together with the construction of a part single/part two storey extension at the rear, provision of a 1.8 metre high timber fence at first floor level, installation of new windows and doors in the rear elevation, refuse & recycle storage at the rear and the re-configuration of the upper floor flats to provide 1 one bedroom self-contained maisonette, 2 one bedroom self-contained flats and 2 two bedroom self-contained maisonettes.

The developers are the people behind the planned redevelopment of St Cyprian's Church on Brockley Road, which has yet to leave the drawing board.

Thinking this to be too small for Sainsburys, I checked thier requirements and it would be big enough:

Also there is a massive give away in that the plans use the term 'back up area' which I see is a sainsburys term and not one in general use for retail storage space.

Good news!

Fantastic. Would love a JS there. Spend a fortune in Tesco on poorer quality food and would happily switch if the option presented itself locally. I wonder what the timeframe is.

I'd quite like a Dominos.

Sainsbury's has better quality food than Tesco's? Please they are much the same. The best thing about Sainsbury's is that it keeps the chavs out of Waitrose...

I think it'll be great for the area. Will bring more people to the parade. How do we know it's Sainsbury's anyway? Could be a Tesco....

Tesco, Asda or Sainsburys would be welcomed. We'd take a Morrisons too.

One thing Brockley has always promised but never delivered is a KFC. Currently choices are between the walk-in shop in Catford (under the Cat) or the 24 hour drive through on Old Kent Road. Something a little closer to home, please?

this tells a lot about quality concern

I wonder what happen with the sainsbury in NX/lewisham way. Did the anarcho-hippies won the "no chains" game?
