Kostless Food & Wine at 29 Queenstown Road have applied for a licence.
Some might recognise the premises, which operated as a 24 hour store (although without a 24 hour alcohol licence) until recently. I understand that the premises suffered severe water damage following some plumbing difficulties, but someone is clearly looking to re-open the premises now. Some might be concerned by this since there was a feeling that anti-social behaviour in the alley-way besides the premises and the immediate area were connected with the old shop.
The new applicant is applying to sell alcohol from 10am until 10pm Sunday to Thursday and 10am until 11pm Friday and Saturday.
If you want to make a representation you have until 29 April. Representations 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
Unfortunately there is no scope to complain on the grounds that they have clearly made up the word ‘kostless’.
The council’s licensing pages provide more information.
