RESIDENTS worry a plan to allow a petrol station's M&S supermarket to sell alcohol at all times of the day would lead to more 'noisy behaviour'.

The BP petrol station in Park Street, Thame has already got permission to sell alcohol most of the day but wants to sell it between midnight and 6am daily.

It was given permission to sell alcohol from 6am until midnight seven days a week in April 2015.

But Thame Town Council said it is opposed to any changes because of the petrol station's location in a residential area, with a resident claiming it would only make disruption they say they already endure worse.

The resident states in a letter: "The petrol station and store frequently attract gatherings in the evening and overnight, particularly after pub closing time, who at times engage in noisy behaviour, causing disturbance to nearby residents."

They add their sleep is frequently disrupted during the summer by people congregating outside the petrol station.

Andrea Oughton, Thame Town Council's committee services officer, said the council feels the change would be 'unnecessary and inappropriate' because of potential noise.

The supermarket's management has said it would adhere to strict licensing conditions, including using CCTV which would need to be retained for at least 31 days. The application will be decided next Friday.
