PORTSMOUTH City Council is likely to ignore calls asking it to control deliveries at a shop in Old Portsmouth.

One local resident and the Friends of Old Portsmouth group have written to object to plans to change the front of the Co-op at 36-37 High Street. They believe the shop should not be allowed to move its sliding entrance doors and replace its signs with black, white and green company colours, unless deliveries are restricted to the back of the shop, and dogs and bikes are not tied up against the shop’s front railings. But the council’s planning office is preparing to approve the changes without those conditions.
