Talking Tesco - Holmefield Road

Residents on Holmefield Road, Aigburth Hall Avenue and nearby still report horrendous problems with the new Tesco store.  Frankly its not good enough. Tesco say they want to be a good neighbour but I really don't know what they mean.

As part of our work to deal with this, Richard and I and Tina Gould (councillor for the next door ward) are meeting traffic officers and police tomorrow.

We are also highlighting this at next week's environment committee. Tina and I have written a formal motion on the situation. The motion, which is on the agenda for the committee meeting on the 15th, is pasted below.

To consider the following Motion by Councillors Paula Keaveney and

Tina Gould;

Committee notes the problems of residents living near to Tesco on Holmefield Road of delivery trucks on a residential street.

Committee also notes that despite assurances from Tesco PLC, deliveries to this store are being made outside of the agreed 7am-9am & 7pm-9pm Monday-Saturday, and 9am - 12noon on Sundays and bank holidays. The earliest delivery being at 6.10 am over the weekend of 3rd and 4th of March.

Committee recognises the disruption and intrusion this is causing to the residents through noise pollution.

Committee calls for urgent action by the Member for Environment and Climate Change and Environmental Health to contact Tesco and their sub contractors to ensure they adhere to the delivery times to reduce the noise pollution and disruption to local residents.
