A SUPERMARKET giant has confirmed it will fight a decision to stop it extending its delivery hours.Sainsbury's in Worle wanted to start delivering early on a Sunday morning and for an extra hour each day in the week.But two weeks ago North Somerset councillors said the company's wish to deliver as early as 8am on a Sunday was an insult to residents' rights to a lie-in on the weekend.A planning application for the extension was turned down at a planning and regulatory committee, after a petition signed by 36 residents was submitted to the authority.But now a spokesman for the supermarket has confirmed the company will lodge an official appeal against the decision.However, no date has been set for when it will be submitted.Sainsbury's also wanted to be able to deliver for an extra hour on weekday mornings between 5-6.30am but that was also turned down.
