Coventry residents unhappy with local burger joint’s offer to stay open late

Coventry residents have hit out at a fast food outlet’s plans to stay open until midnight. Burger Boi on Daventry Road in Cheylesmore has applied for permission to serve food an hour later than it currently can.

Council officers say it should get the go-ahead as no “responsible authorities” have a problem with the bid. But more than 30 locals have signed a petition asking the council not to allow the move, saying it would have an “adverse” effect on people living nearby.

Their appeal claims the burger joint doesn’t just stop when it closes at 11pm – and they say the same would happen if it stayed open later. “This is not acceptable to local residents, most of whom will be in bed at this time,” it added.

Two other residents also voiced their concerns. A letter claims noise levels have increased since the chain opened on the road two years ago.

The letter claims there is “constant illegal parking of vehicles accessing the premises” causing risks to children and the elderly. There were “near misses” for those trying to cross the road due to “dangerously” parked cars, the letter said.
