Now they have posted a notice for the application to sell alcohol 6am to 11pm. Can't find it online, not sure why they can't transfer the old licence that seems to be still valid? Do they always need a new one with the change of owners?

But it seems Tesco is not planning to open all night like the old Costcutters did. So already worse service than before in that aspect.

I noticed that on Christmas Day, there was nothing open as the independent supermarkets had closed. I rarely need anything at 2am but it was nice when I did.

Just as an aside, I had family down some years ago from the boonies where I am from and they were exicted to have so many shops open all night, as at that point they didn't even have Starbucks in their respective towns. Now they have 24 hour shopping nearby and I don't, how ironic.

Well its noisy enough around Southwark tube station/The Cut - without any 24 hour opening.of anything around here.....of any supermarket......tubes/buses going all night (more or less) is there no rest for the wicked? . Notice Waitrose (nice civilised branch) open (since september apparently) at London Bridge - North end near Monument - be nice if they move further South West to us!

Never saw or heard the Costcutters cause any extra noise when it was open 24hrs. It is meant to be a 24h city and people have different needs. Some of us work shifts. And I much rather have open shops in my streets at night than completely dead streets. But I guess Tesco is right as their targeted customers will have left the area on the last tube anyway, we have already established that they are not here for people who live here but for the passing trade.

Noise causes stress and stress is a killer from where ever it originates - causing strokes. Heart attacks and consequently premature deaths.

Blimey, it's a wonder any musician makes it into their 30s ;-)

Music has been used in psychological operations. The term music torture is sometimes used by critics of the practice of playing loud music incessantly to prisoners or people besieged. The United Nations and the European Court of Human Rights have banned the use of loud music in interrogations

"These people haven't heard heavy metal. They can't take it. If you play it for 24 hours, your brain and body functions start to slide, your train of thought slows down and your will is broken. That's when we come in and talk to them"


I love (and make) music btw. Anything from Scriabin to Queens of the Stone Age .

James, thanks for the info.

Veritas, I'm not sure 24 hour shops equals noise but of course it's a concern.

BSB, indeed it is, but I suspect it's something other than noise that is the cause.
