Off license application - deadline looms

I've just sent off my comments on the application to sell alcohol at the Grassendale Service Station on Aigburth Road.

This is the garage that applied before, back in 2008. At the time they were turned down after a day long committee meeting.

I can't see that much has changed quite frankly so I am opposing this again. The only difference is that a law change means that Councillors now can object (the previous rules meant that we could only really read out comments from other people which was frustrating to say the least)

We (the three Lib Dem Councillors in Cressington) wrote to people living in the neighbouring streets a while ago to let them know about the application and the system for sending in comments. The deadline for sending anything in is 2 April and given that that means Good Friday it's important to get comments in by Thursday.

Information is available at www.liverpool.gov.uk (look for the licensing section)
