B&Q Sunday trading request turned down

Published: 25 October 2016 - Jenny Wonnacott

B&Q in Jersey has reportedly had its application to open nine Sundays a year turned down by the planning department.

According to an ITV report, the DIY giant had already gained permission from the Constable of St Helier for the move, and has been opening on a Sunday for a number of years. However, when the retailer applied to planning to have the temporary consent turned into a permanent licence, it was refused.

The reasons for the refusal were given as concerns over noise and traffic in the area, with four objections submitted to planning over these worries.

A recommendation has now been made that the store be allowed to open on Sundays with some limits such as no deliveries on these days, but the planning department ultimately decided to stick with the no trading decision made back in 1998 when B&Q first submitted plans.
