PLANS for a large home and garden store in Gurnard have been delayed after objections.
The proposal for The Range, which is due to open in the former Readers site on Place Road, includes refurbishing the existing building, building an external garden centre and storage as well as parking for 195 cars.
Planning agent David Neame, of Neame Sutton, said: "The Range is still contractually committed to coming and our client, who owns the site, is also committed and champing at the bit.
"We’re just waiting for the planning authority to grant us planning permission."
The Isle of Wight Council said the objections to the application were being considered and councillors were working through the processes that have to be followed when an objection is made.
Comments on the application included Darran Gange, of Place Road, who said the development would cause increased noise pollution and be highly disturbing for current and future residents of Place Road.
John and Julia Gange, also of Place Road, said the development would overlook bedrooms and gardens in the road and objected to plans for a road for delivery lorries.
Colin and Hazel Smith, also of Place Road, expressed concerns about trees and shrubs at the site, car parking, signage, lighting and deliveries at unsocialable hours.
