24 hour alcohol sales - St Mary's Road - update.

We now know the date of the licensing committee meeting about whether or not the petrol station on Garston Way/St Mary's Road will be able to sell alcohol 24 hours a day. This is the filling station by ASDA where St Marys Road starts going down into Garston village.

The meeting is on the 5th September.  Richard Oglethorpe and I will be there on behalf of local people (thanks to those who signed the petition asking us to represent you).

Richard appears to be  the only Councillor to have sent in an objection ( which means effectively that two of the current three Cressington Councillors and all of the Speke Garston Councillors have not bothered)

Obviously at the moment we can't predict how this will turn out although we will use all the arguments about potential noise nuisance and anti social behaviour etc.  Many people have said to us that they are worried about this, particularly as there are so many houses very near this place.

Anyway, the paperwork in advance of the meeting is on the Council's website at the moment which you can find at this link.

We will update as soon as we can.
