Supermarket seeks long-term permission for 5am deliveries

Braintree and Witham Times: Supermarket seeks long-term permission for 5am deliveries Supermarket seeks long-term permission for 5am deliveries

A supermarket believes it is not disrupting nearby residents by starting deliveries from 5am each day.

Sainsbury’s, in Tofts Walk, Braintree, is seeking permission to allow early morning deliveries seven days a week.

Temporary permission, which expires in April, was granted last year while Braintree Council monitored noise impacts on neighbouring residents.

Leanne Croft, of agents Indigo Planning, said: “No complaints have subsequently arisen in relation to the early morning delivery arrangements.

“The proposed delivery times to the front of the store will help the existing town centre anchor store to continue to operate efficiently and effectively, and to contribute positively to the vitality and viability to Braintree town centre.”

A public consultation period on the application closes on March 18.

can we not have any peace anywhere at any time now? motorised vehicles; screaming and shouting; loud music; mobile phones; laptops; screaming brats; racing cars and motorbikes and thousands of other things - if supermarkets are near homes they should be made to show respect and not have deliveries or make other noises until at least after 7 am some of us work hard and deserve a lie in and all of us have the right to peace and quiet at some point

Bhudeeka, it is really quite simple. If you move near a superstore you expect delivery noise. If you move near a school you expect mums parking all along the roads and screaming kids. If you move near a pub you expect drunken yobs from time to time.
The only real answer is to use your brain when choosing your house. Alternatively, if you are given a house by the council you should be happy with what you are given or get a job.
The things you mention are all part of modern life. Accept it and you will feel much happier from it.
Purely out of interest - how do laptops not give you any peace?

Ah, the self-styled Queen of the Iceni (wait: she lives in Witham. That can't be right. Yet her name seems hauntingly familiar... ?) arises in indignant anger at the imposition of the saxon lifestyle over her more parochial and provincial sensibilities. Mayhaps she would be better off not squaring up agains the forces of modernity in Camulodunum but return to her native isle off the west coast (of Africa)?

Fer crissakes, Bhudeeka: get a grip, luv! "Motorised vehicles"?! What - as opposed to the pony and trap (much like that which you spout)? Screaming brats? No kids allowed in Uganda? Nigeria? Whereevvaaaah? Indeed there are "thousands of other things" that make noise -- and we all remember Dr. Cordingley's admonitions that "empty vessels make the most noise", don't we, your Majesty?

Bhudeeka dearest listen not to these miserable wretches. You must forgive the bitter comments which ooze like a green ectoplasm from their sobbing broken hearts. Unrequited love does many strange and inexplicable things to man.

I also have tried to woo you with promises of Tea Dances, Tandem Bike Rides, and all manner of other romantic treats but you have spurned them all. I know when I am beaten and I too must now slink away as they all no doubt did before me.

Before I disappear into the sunset however let me draw your attention to a little poem which I think was written especially for you. It goes:

Somewhere there’s someone who dreams of your smile,
And finds in your presence that life is worthwhile,
So when you are lonely, remember it’s true:
Somebody, somewhere is thinking of you.

And what’s more, I have found that very person of your dreams.

All you have to do is go to http://www.mirror.co

-living-cave-2206085 and you will find someone who I’m sure can make you a very happy lady, so why not do us all a favour and go to live with him.

I know of someone who bought a house in a village called "Church View". Indeed, it was opposite the lovely large and well-supported village church. So what did they do? Complain to the church about the noise of the bells ringing!

I see the braindead idiots are out in force again. Let me explain to you peace hating thickos most supermarkets are built near where people already live - why the hell should they move? I totally agree with the comments about not moving somewhere where there is something you like in place already but in a lot of incidents that's not the case. Also, just because you morons hate peace and quiet is suggest you go and live in a nice big town or city where you will be more at home and leave us country people to enjoy the peace that we had before ilks like you moved in/took over

*choke*

That, your Majesty, is the most eloquent and grammatically astounding thing you've ever written. I was floored and led to think it wasn't Queen of the Iceni at all! That was until I recognised the same ol' vitriol: the sharp vituperative tongue was merely masked beneath a mien of considered thought and rational eloquence (well for you). Tsk tsk, dear.

Look, if you didn't want to have all those foreigners move in (remind me again: where are you from?) then maybe you all should've thought about it before allowing the construction of affordable housing that lured these hordes of rampaging romans into your formerly bucolic neighbourhood. Talk to your elected representatives! Otherwise, you ignorant and rude excuse for a human being, us "peace hating thickos" will continue to migrate and bring with us the good (as well as perhaps some of the not-so-good) manifestations of modernity that you seem (verbally) to shun.

If you enjoyed reading Bhudeeka's last post on this subject (1:01pm Fri 7 Mar 14 above) then I really do recommend you to read it again with a recording of Arthur Wood’s “Barwick Green" being softly played in the background by Sidney Torch and his Orchestra.

I can promise you a Mind Blowing Experience!

Just for the edification of any brain dead peace hating thicko idiotic morons out there I should perhaps explain that “Barwick Green" is a "Maypole Dance" from the suite ‘My Native Heath’ which was used as the theme tune to the BBC’s long running tale of country-folk known and loved as ‘The Archers’.

Dumpty diddly dumpty dee; dumpty diddly daa daa

Oh, Buggger! Now look what I’ve gone and done. I’ll be stuck with that soddin tune all day now!!

See ya at the Morris Dancing Festival on 1st May Buddy dear. I’m just fixing all the bells onto my hat now in readiness.

Now, if I were to ask Walter Gabriel about his opinion on bucolic village life, what do you think might be his answer? A little less abrasive than Her Majesty's in this "incident", mayhaps, but along the same theme?

AKA Panfield Lane Secondary Modern School by any chance?

A repository for the 'out of sight out of mind' storage of pubescent youth and simultaneous stifling of any emerging ambitions. Strongly supported by the copious applications of sadistic punishments administered by thinly disguised psychopathic creatures know as metal work and maths 'teachers'.

Would have preferred to see it burn myself - with one or two I can think of still inside!

If you are, as you say one of the "Country People", then why would you be bothered about the noise at the Sainsburys in the middle of Braintree, which has already been happening for nearly a year with no complaints?

Funny thing really...........

Even after all these years, the memory of those wicked cruel ba**ards still engenders a venomous hatred the like of which I normally only reserve for people such as the 'Officers' (Puke!) of the North East Essex Parking Partnership.
