A controversial bid to apply for an alcohol licence on Branch Road, Armley, has been withdrawn by the applicant.
But the application was withdrawn by the store owner ahead of the meeting. It’s not yet known whether another application will be submitted.
The owners had pledged to abide by licensing laws.
But the application had 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.
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.
