A SUPERMARKET has been granted extended delivery hours in Carterton.

Morrisons will make deliveries from 6am to midnight, Monday to Saturday, and 6am to 11pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

It marked a U-turn by West Oxfordshire District Council after it granted planning permission for the store in 2012, but ruled it could not make deliveries between 11pm and 7am.

The council’s Lowlands area planning sub-committee yesterday also granted retrospective permission for a waste paper extraction plant in Southfield Road, Eynsham.

Berforts Information Press printing company said it thought the building, used for binding and trimming paper, was a ‘permitted development’ and did not need formal permission.

Six residents opposed the plans saying it sounded like a “jet engine”, and its operating hours were restricted from 7am to 11pm, Monday to Saturday, with it not being allowed to run on a Sunday.

The council also ruled that a 3m fence should be built to reduce noise.

Meanwhile, the council’s deputy leader Mark Booty, a member of the sub-committee, was given provisional approval to convert a stable block in Aston Road, Bampton, into a two-bedroom holiday apartment to rent out.

In his application, Mr Booty said his equestrian business was under-used and the accommodation would offer better commercial opportunities.

Planning consent depends on the Environment Agency believing the site is vulnerable to flooding.
