The Council says All applications can be viewed in full at the council offices with prior notice. Contact the licensing section on 01904 552512 for an appointment to view. Representations must be made in writing in the timescale indicated on the notice and sent to the Licensing Office, Hazel Court EcoDepot, James Street, York YO10 3DS.
Representations must relate to one or more of the 4 licensing objectives of the Act namely, prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.
The prospective operator of a Londis store which will open at 39A York Road is seeking a license to sell alcohol between 6:00am and 11:00pm.
The Police have insisted on a wide range of conditions which would be applied if the license was granted.
Whether York Road/ Front Street needs another alcohol sales outlet is another question.
An objection to the plan has been recorded by a local resident which probably reflects the views held by many others.
The Front Street area does need an uplift and a boost to its evening economy would be welcome.
But any magnet for anti-social behaviour would be another blow for the area.
