A SUDBURY supermarket will find out if its bid to increase deliveries to the store has been successful next week.

Aldi, in Girling Street, is applying to extend its delivery hours until 10pm on Saturdays and begin taking deliveries between 9am and 6pm on Sundays and bank holidays.

The move, which was criticised by Sudbury town councillors and nearby residents at a town council meeting last month, is due to go before Babergh District Council’s development committee on Wednesday.

During the meeting, Laura Johnson, whose house in Queens Road backs on to Aldi’s car park, said the change would result in increased traffic and noise for residents.

Town councillor John Sayers said he was convinced the increase should not be permitted as it could set a precedent in the town.

Members agreed to recommend a delivery window of between 9am and 1pm on Sundays.

It is expected an increase in deliveries will be granted but restricted to between 7am and 10pm Monday to Friday, 7am to 8pm on Saturdays and between 10am and 4pm on Sundays and bank holidays.
