                                                        SAINSBURY’S
                                                        It was reported in the local paper, Hammersmith & Fulham
                                                        News, that Sainsbury’s has bought the land adjacent to their
                                                        store in Townmead Road. According to the paper...

                                                        “The company intends to demolish the site’s derelict
                                                        buildings, and then expand its existing 35,000 ft²
                                                        supermarket into the 3½ acres of neighbouring land.
                                                        Sainsbury’s are also proposing to build new housing & create
                                                        public spaces and enhanced access to a riverside walkway
                                                        within the development.”

                                                        Sainsbury’s is likely to submit a planning application to the
