SUPERMARKET giant Morrisons has been given permission to extend the time when deliveries can be made to its store in Yate on Sundays.

SUPERMARKET giant Morrisons has been given permission to extend the time when deliveries can be made to its store in Yate on Sundays.

The change of conditions allowed by South Gloucestershire Council means up to four deliveries can now be made on Sundays from 9am-4pm - but only using the company’s own lorries. 

Previously no goods could be accepted on that day after 11.30am at the supermarket in Station Road.

Morrisons had originally asked if Sunday deliveries could be accepted from 9am-9pm but was told a 4pm cut-off would fit in with the time when stores in the area closed.

Yate Town Council had objected to the application, claiming it would result in disturbance for people living near the store.
