Sainsbury’s submits licence application for new 24-hour location in Harrow

Plans are underway for a new Sainsbury’s in Harrow. The company has applied for a premises licence for a new store in Eastman Village, just off Harrow View.

The application is for a store that is already under construction located at ‘Building G’, on the corner of Harrow View and Primary Street.

Eastman Village, established in 2018 on the site of the former Kodak factory in Harrow, is a modern residential development. It offers a mix of apartments, houses, shops, cafes, and green spaces, and has become a vibrant community in the borough.


The proposed new Sainsbury’s Local store will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, the sale of alcohol will be limited to 7:00am to 11:00pm daily.

Plans for the new supermarket in Eastman Village have been in place for some time as part of a broader regeneration initiative by Harrow Council. According to the Barratt Homes website, “As part of the regeneration programme by Harrow Council, Eastman Village will provide over 2,000 new homes, a gym, supermarket, school, café, restaurant and flexible office spaces.”

The application includes measures for public safety and the prevention of public nuisance. According to the document, “The applicant will at all times maintain adequate levels of staff and security. Such staff and security levels will be disclosed, on request, to the licensing authority and police.”

To prevent public nuisance, the application also states, “Signage will be displayed at the exit of the premises requesting customers leaving the premises late at night to do so quietly and with consideration so as not to disturb nearby residents.”

The public notice period runs from June 28, 2024, to July 26, 2024. Residents can submit their representations to the Head of Licensing at the London Borough of Harrow by the closing date.


The new store is designed as a full-service supermarket, featuring different sections for product displays and customer service. The application includes a detailed floor plan to show how everything will be laid out.
