As ward councillors for the area around Rawreth Lane, we thought we had our hands full with Asda. Now Makro have submitted a planning application to increase the size of their building by about 22 percent – from 9500 square metres to 11500 square metres.
They also want a change in conditions to allow delivery vehicles to arrive 24 hours a day Monday to Friday and 0700hrs-1700hrs Saturday and Sunday and revise store opening hours to 0730hrs-2100hrs Monday to Friday and 0730hrs-1900hrs on Saturday and 0900hrs-1730hrs on Sunday.
How will this affect the Asda application? We don’t know….
