Anger over Hove Nando's delivery time bid

First published in News

The operators of a new Nando’s restaurant in Hove are hoping to be allowed Saturday afternoon deliveries despite residents’ protests.

Developers behind the new diner at the Goldstone Retail Park in Old Shoreham Road are looking to amend a previous application, so that deliveries can be made on Saturdays between 8am and 6pm.

Current permission only allows Saturday deliveries between 9am and noon.

Eighteen residents have signed a petition against the increased delivery times, claiming the move would increase noise disturbance at the site, while they are also unhappy about the smell of cooking.

Goldstone Valley Residents Association and local councillors Vanessa Brown and Jayne Bennett have also raised objections.

Other proposed changes include landscaping around the restaurant.

Brighton and Hove City Council’s planning committee will decide on the issue tomorrow and officers have recommended that they allow the changes, stating they “would not have an unduly harmful impact” on residents and on the area.

I can understand that - it is fowl odour.

I am a local window cleaner and there are plenty of traffic restrictions I have to abide by, such as no stopping between 7 and 10 am in the morning on western road eastbound from central Hove in to town ( incidentally that's the best time to be cleaning the windows of local shops and cafes etc. before they open or are busy)
Why should it be any different for Nandos ? Oh yeah of course because they are a large chain with plenty of money behind them ! If they cannot work on that site within the rules already in place then maybe they should go elsewhere rather than bending the rules to suit there own ends.

On the other hand, its Hove actually, sod the snooty nimbys !
Bet they are quite happy to have waitrose deliver their weekly groceries on a Sunday afternoon if it suited them , never mind their neighbours.

The point I am trying to make is a comparison Andy R., I mentioned it as way of an example.
The traffic restrictions I mention affect local businesses with their delivery times and prevent vehicles stopping kerb side within those times.as well as my working day. But we all abide by those restrictions or face being fined.
Nandos however wish to be allowed to have their deliveries outside of the existing restrictions to suit them, all other businesses in that retail park have had to abide by conditions but Nandos wish to be made an exception, sorry if you could not understand that.

You do have to wonder about the Nimbies in this city. So a retail estate that already has Toys R Us ( very well used ) and a Burger King drive through will become busier because Nandos want to do home deliveries ???? Pull the other one. The retail park has been there a long time now ( thanks to the scum called Archer ) and they should have objected to the retail park in the first place rather than come up with irrelevant objections to a new business moving in.

Well ok...but it's not really the same thing is it? The deliveries restriction is in there as a planning condition. Nandos is perfectly entitled to ask for it to be varied, although obviously not to breach it if it doesn't get varied.

We did, and further objected when the Burger King application went in to no avail. There's little point in raising objections, petition's etc. however, if those 'who decide' have been 'persuaded' beforehand!

This council is snide, its the strategically placed remote cameras that people fail to see that catch you out ! the first you know of a traffic contravention is when a £70 pcn arrives through your door with photographic evidence ! and you thought they were there to prevent street crime and lull the public in to a false sense of security, tell that to poor keith and his daughter attacked whilst waiting for a bus before xmas in churchill square by a Ferrel mob.

The traffic restrictions I mention affect local businesses with their delivery times and prevent vehicles stopping kerb side within those times.as well as my working day. But we all abide by those restrictions or face being fined.

Ok Andy maybe a bad comparison, but regardless of why those planning conditions are in place, why should Nandos get special consideration ? What to the other retailers who have stuck to the rules on delivery times at that site for many years ? you cannot have exceptions for individuals. I suspect there are financial implications as to why Nandos cannot keep to a 3 hour delivery window on a weekend. There are financial implications for my business and many other businesses across Brighton and Hove too with the times we may deliver or load/unload but we don't all go asking for changes to be made to suit us. Just because you are Nandos it should make no difference.

Nandos is perfectly entitled to ask for it to be varied, although obviously not to breach it if it doesn't get varied.[/p][/quote]Ok Andy maybe a bad comparison, but regardless of why those planning conditions are in place, why should Nandos get special consideration ? What to the other retailers who have stuck to the rules on delivery times at that site for many years ? you cannot have exceptions for individuals. I suspect there are financial implications as to why Nandos cannot keep to a 3 hour delivery window on a weekend. There are financial implications for my business and many other businesses across Brighton and Hove too with the times we may deliver or load/unload but we don't all go asking for changes to be made to suit us. Just because you are Nandos it should make no difference. lewes road low life

How brighton, here in Hove we send our windows out to be cleaned. Wonderful news about our massive new Waitrose displacing that rubbish co-op in Neville road

The 19th century co-op store will close soon and will reopen as a Waitrose superstore in April

Because of course, there's really no cooking smells from the current burger king? I cannot see how this is going to increase noise on a Saturday in a retail park next to an already noisy road. Seriously, be grateful that you're not burdened with a run down sports discount store and that some real money people are coming into this currently dire site.

Absolutely bang on, @theprophesy! George Street has something like 12 charity stores on it now - and it's only a little street - the place is a mess and a disgrace. Be nice to see some more urban regeneration across the whole area!

Agree but when was the last time you ordered a takeaway between 8am and 6pm? Surely a brand of this size would recognise that 99% of takeaways are ordered after 6pm?

Perhaps no other retailer bothered to challenge the restriction as they didn't need to.

You could understand an objection if people lived above Nando's but not when its in a RETAIL PARK.

Its people like this that prevent any developments taking place - they'd rather see a load of derelict shops and no new buildings anywhere in brighton

Why should it be any different for Nandos ? Oh yeah of course because they are a large chain with plenty of money behind them ! If they cannot work on that site within the rules already in place then maybe they should go elsewhere rather than bending the rules to suit there own ends.

On the other hand, its Hove actually, sod the snooty nimbys !
Bet they are quite happy to have waitrose deliver their weekly groceries on a Sunday afternoon if it suited them , never mind their neighbours.
Waitrose will create twice as much traffic as the pathetic coop did , so why be up in arms about a few deliveries of chicken, the residents association should be looking at things such as - why it floods at the North end of Hove Park every time it rains making the footpath unuseable or why people speed along Goldstone Crescent next to Hove Park kids area or why Hove Rugby club are allowed to decimate Hove Rec (I thought it was a park for everybody to use).
Now is the time to realise that the shopping centre is south of the Old Shoreham road and will cause little if not any problem, Goldstone valley has too many old people with too much time, so they complain about any thing
