A licensing application that I would imagine might cause more concern has been submitted by Zac Newsagents of 3, Lavender Sweep (although many may think of it as being on Lavender Hill or even Eccles Road).

They are seeking to extend there licence for off-sales on three nights a week. Until midnight on Sundays and until 02:00 on the mornings following Friday and Saturday.

Although just off the main road I can imagine most people consider this to be a residential area and, therefore, may have concerns about their corner shop being a late night destination for alcohol. If I recall correctly Asda stopped all night alcohol sales (when they were a 24 hours store) because it was causing problems.

Representations on this application can be made until 2 September. As ever, they must relate to the four licensing objectives:

  • The prevention of crime and disorder
  • The prevention of public nuisance
  • Public safety
  • The protection of children from harm

The council’s licensing pages provide more information.
