New Armley Town Street off-licence application to be decided


An application for another off licence in Armley Town Street will be heard tomorrow.

Fresh Metro Cooperation have applied for a licence to sell alcohol from 90 Town Street every day from 8am until 11.30pm.

Councillors on the council’s licensing committee will decide the application tomorrow (Tuesday) at a Civic Hall meeting starting at 10am.

There are 11 local objections to the proposals, including representations from Armley Community Forum, Armley Cllr Alison Lowe and Leeds West MP Rachel Reeves.

Concerns centre around the possible impact another outlet selling alcohol might have on existing problems with street drinking and anti-social behaviour in the area.

An application by Ahmad Adnan Ali of Potraviny International Foods was last week rejected by the council as being unsuitable for the area.

The Town Street area is to be subject of a cumulative impact policy, which will make it more difficult for new off licences to be granted.

As reported by The Dispatch, the policy has been given the go ahead by the council’s licensing committee, but it is still to be rubberstamped by this month’s meeting of full council.
