New Armley alcohol licence hearing for town centre


Councillors will decide an application for an alcohol licence on Branch Road, Armley next week.

Members of Leeds City Council’s licensing committee will consider an application from the Tatra Sklep grocery store to sell alcohol daily between 8am and 11pm. The owners have pledged to abide by licensing laws.

The application has been opposed by Armley ward councillors Alice Smart and Jim McKenna on the grounds that another shop selling alcohol could exacerbate existing problems of street drinking in the area.

Read Cllr Smart’s objection in full here. Cllr McKenna has objected on similar grounds on behalf of the Armley Forum group.

The licensing committee meets next Tuesday at Leeds Civic Hall (10am). The meeting is open to the public.

Last month applicant Ranj Rashid Raja successfully applied for his Branch Road convenience store to be able to sell alcohol to be drunk off premises. The success came despite opposition from local councillors.
