A BID to alter the planning conditions of a new supermarket to allow it to open 24 hours a day has been submitted to Bradford Council.

Permission to convert the former Halfords store on Leeds Road into a supermarket was first granted in late 2017.

A condition of the application’s approval was that the business could only open between 9am and 11pm, with Bradford Council planning officers saying those opening hours were imposed “in the interests of the amenities of neighbouring residents.”

Work is well underway on converting the building, and now applicant Adil Chaudry, of Al Halal Supermarket Worldwide, has submitted an application to change these conditions to allow for 24/7 opening of the shop.

A decision on whether to allow this change is expected in October.

A separate planning application to install a totem advertising sign on the site has also been submitted to the Council.

And an application to open a mezzanine cafe within the new store was approved by planning officers earlier this year.
