B&Q Jersey has Sunday trading extension turned down

B&Q Strood

B&Q in Jersey has had its application to open for nine Sundays every year turned down.

The company already had permission from the Constable of St Helier and has been operating on some Sundays for over three years, however, B&Q hadn't applied to Planning to have the temporary consent turned into a permanent licence.

The application has now been turned down due to concerns relating to noise and increased traffic in the area and four objections were submitted to Planning about those worries.

A recommendation was made, that B&Q be allowed to open on Sundays with a number of restrictions, such as no lorry deliveries on those days. However, the department decided to stick with the original decision made in 1998 by planning when B&Q submitted plans for the outlet.
