Morrisons Romford - Proposals for a new foodstore on Rom Valley Way

The vision

Following a legal agreement between Havering Council and Morrisons, plans are being brought forward that will deliver a new leisure centre on Western Road in the town centre.

To help deliver the new leisure facilities in the town centre and provide other benefits, a new Morrisons, petrol station and housing development is being proposed on the site of existing Romford Ice Arena on Rom Valley Way.

Together the proposals will:

  • create hundreds of new jobs for local people, with training and apprenticeship opportunities
  • deliver long-awaited leisure centre in the heart of Romford
  • improve food shopping choice in Romford by introducing the first Morrisons to the Borough with its affordable fresh food offer
  • regenerate both the Western Road and Rom Valley Way sites and provide a catalyst for further regeneration in Romford
  • provide much-needed new housing in Romford
  • boost trade and footfall in the town centre.

Two distinct planning applications have been approved for the two sites – one by Morrisons for Rom Valley Way; the other by the Havering Council for Western Road.
