Councillors grant Calverley Village Store alcohol licence

By John Baron

Councillors have approved an application for a licence to sell alcohol off premises at Calverley Village Store.

Members of the licensing sub committee approved Milad Karimi’s application sell alcohol daily between 7am and 11pm at the Carr Road store.

There was one objection to the application, expressing concerns including street drinking on a bench nearby, the potential for anti-social behaviour and noise. It also expresses concern about increased illegal parking near a pedestrian crossing.

The applicant has agreed to meet all licensing objectives, and police have no concerns. He was represented at the meeting from Nick Semper, from licensing experts The Licensing Guys.

He told the meeting that his client offered a “quality application, correctly conditioned with specific, appropriate and proportionate control measures, ensuring thus minimising potential that any licensing objective would be undermined.”

Councillors approved the licence, subject to the measures offered by the applicant in their proposed operating schedule which includes operating a ‘Check 25’ policy if customers look under the age of 25, running CCTV in the shop and a register to record all incidents and accidents.
