You may remember that recently Tesco, which is opening up on Holmefield Road where the old SPAR was, applied for a licence to sell alcohol. There was some worry about this because of the anti social behaviour linked with alcohol sales there before. But the license was given for sales from 7 am to 10pm Monday to Sunday.
I've recently heard that, having got the licence, Tesco is now applying for an amendment to it to extend the hours to a 6am start and 11pm finish. This may be innocent but I have to say it strikes me as somewhat sneaky, coming so soon after the committee decision.
Anyway, local people are entitled to send in comments and objections with a deadline of March 7th.
The City Council has produced a handy form to help people writing in about licensing applications. You can find it here (need to scroll down a bit)
