Request to Brighton & Hove City Council to cancel Sunday deliveries at the Goldstone Retail Park
TK Maxx have started taking deliveries at the Goldstone Retail Park, early on Sunday mornings.
For neighbouring residents, this is a major problem, affecting sleep, health and wellbeing. Deliveries involve loud, metal-on-metal sounds, amplified by the echo effects of the warehouse walls.
Until now, Sundays have been the only day of the week, free from these deliveries.
The council planning department have given TK Maxx the green light for Sunday deliveries without any planning application or any consultation with the local residents.
The neighbouring residents object to this change and want the permission for Sunday deliveries to be rescinded.
Why is this important?
Noise pollution has a significant impact on health.
Extract from the World Health Organization website:
"Excessive noise seriously harms human health and interferes with people’s daily activities at school, at work, at home and during leisure time. It can disturb sleep, cause cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects, reduce performance and provoke annoyance responses and changes in social behaviour.
Traffic noise alone is harmful to the health of almost every third person in the WHO European Region. One in five Europeans is regularly exposed to sound levels at night that could significantly damage health".
