Morrisons Local store to open in June on site of former Witham pub

Braintree and Witham Times: Morrisons Local store to open in June on site of former Witham pub Morrisons Local store to open in June on site of former Witham pub

A former pub is expected to reopen as a convenience store as soon as next month.

Supermarket giant Morrisons was granted planning permission to make changes to the Jack and Jenny, in Hatfield Road, Witham, by Braintree Council in December.

The chain was also permitted to sell alcohol from 6am to midnight, seven days a week, at a licensing committee meeting the same month.

Building work at the site is now complete and, despite an application for new lighting being deferred by councillors earlier this month, Morrisons expects the new M Local store to open by the end of June.

Sadly the planners were able, for complicated planning reasons, to consider the noise and traffic impacts of the scheme on the locality, so local residents are bearing the brunt of noisy refrigerated trucks arriving at before 6am every day and late into the evening (it was 0550 this morning). It was obvious from the start that deliveries would be at anti-social hours, as they are now proving to be.
