Planning change would allow 24-hour deliveries

DELIVERIES to a Salisbury supermarket could be permanently allowed at all times of day and night, if a planning application is approved by Wiltshire Council.

Aldi, in London Road, has applied for a variation of planning conditions allowing for lorries to make deliveries around the clock be made permanent.

The variation was allowed for a period of two years in March 2021.
Previously, deliveries had been restricted to between 6am and 10pm, Monday to Saturday, and between 7am and 5pm on Sundays.

‘Reverse beepers’ were also banned between 6am and 7am, Monday to Saturday, and from 7am to 9am on Sundays – though this would stay in place under the new plan.

“Aldi is not aware of any noise complaints relating to delivery activity at this store,” the application said.
It added: “The proposal would not see an increase in the number of deliveries to the store, rather existing deliveries would continue to be spread out over a longer period.”

The application says stores such as that in Salisbury receive one or two deliveries a day from HGVs, with others form smaller vehicles throughout the day.
