Following the discussion at the last meeting with regard to the extended alcohol licence that has been requested by Sainsbury's for the proposed Newmarket store, I have written to the licencing team to object. If you wish to add your comments direct to ELDC you must do so by the 17th February.
Here is a copy of the letter
Ref: Sainsbury’s, 155 Newmarket, Louth.
I am writing with reference to the application for a premises licence by Sainsbury’s supermarket on Newmarket, Louth.
I am a member of the Pleasant Resident’s Association which includes residents from this area of Louth. At our last meeting the above licence application was discussed. The residents that attended were particularly concerned with the requirement by Sainsbury’s for a licence to supply alcohol until midnight. The meeting was unanimously opposed to this licence being granted. The local residents are entitled to some protection from the noise and disturbance that a store selling alcohol until the early hours of the morning would create. The granting of such a licence would undoubtedly affect the quality of life of a large number of residents that leave nearby. It is difficult to see what benefits such late hours would have for the vast majority of residents, particularly as the street is already served with three convenience stores.
