A WORLE supermarket has been granted permission to receive deliveries through the night.

A WORLE supermarket has been granted permission to receive deliveries through the night.

Sainsbury's in Worle will now have goods dropped off at its Queens Way store from 10.30pm-5.30am seven days a week.

The proposals went before North Somerset Council's west area committee last week and councillors gave the shop's proposals the go-ahead.

The same plans had been considered by the group in December, but it decided it needed more time to consider things like how the store plans to develop in the future and noise prevention measures.

The shop's temporary overnight delivery permission for the same hours ran out on December 31 and two letters of objection have been received against the plans.

Those living near the site said they have to put up with unbearable noise from the store's yard but retail bosses say they have now put preventative measures in place to stop that.
