Alcohol licence objection for Armley’s new Home Bargains store

Councillors will next week consider an application to sell alcohol off premises at the new Home Bargains store in Armley.

Home Bargains is set to open in the former Wilkos store at Centre West Retail Park, off Stanningley Road, later this year.

Applicant TJ Morris Limited has applied to sell alcohol daily from 6am until midnight at the new store, and members of next Tuesday’s licensing committee will meet at Leeds Civic Hall at 10am to decide the application

A report to be considered by councillors states there have been no representations from responsible authorities like the police, or from local councillors.

There has been one letter of objection from a member of the public on the grounds of public safety, crime and disorder and protection of children from harm.

The Armley Town Street area has been affected by problems with street drinking and anti-social behaviour. The council has imposed a cumulative impact policy in the area, which means applicants for a new or variation of a licence to sell alcohol must demonstrate that they will not add to problems such as public nuisance and crime and disorder. Home Bargains’ application falls within that area.

Proposed conditions include training for staff, operating a Challenge 25 policy to deter under-age drinking and running. CCTV system.

The full application and documents can be read in full here.
