Summary of New Premises Licence Application

 

In accordance with the Licensing Act 2003, following the submission of an application for a new premises licence for Werrington Green Post Office, 2 The Green, Werrington Village, Peterborough, PE4 6RU, which had attracted representations in objection to the application, the Licensing Authority was required to hold a hearing.

 

A summary of the issues raised by persons objecting to application included:

 

?        The local residents believed that the sale of alcohol from the Post Office until late at night would encourage and increase vulnerability to crime.

?        Sufficient numbers of other premises in the local area were authorised to sell alcohol to meet demand.

?        Parking issues would increase due to the Post Office being open late and their customers would be trying to park in the same area as customers of other licensed premises in the immediate vicinity.

?        If a licence was granted there would be an increase in alcohol related incidents including disturbances from customers purchasing alcohol.

?        An increase in littering in the vicinity of the premises.

?        An increase in access of alcohol to young person’s either through theft from the store or through ‘proxy buying’ (where an under 18 year old persuades an over 18 year old to purchase alcohol on their behalf).
