Council licensing chiefs have approved an application for an off licence at a new convenience store at Stanningley Bottom – but only after the owner reduced the proposed opening hours.

Mr Mohammed Doski, of Stainbeck Road, submitted an application for an off licence for his new In N Out store at 17 Bradford Road.

Councillors on the licensing committee approved the application, subject to conditions. These will see the convenience store sell alcohol Sunday to Thursday from 7am to 11pm and Friday and Saturday 7am to 12 midnight.

The Friday and Saturday hours have been scaled back from 7am until 4am following concerns reported by WLD over street drinking and anti-social behaviour.

Concerns were raised by Calverley & Farsley’s councillors over the 4am closure, along with West Yorkshire Police and Leeds City Council’s environmental protection team.

The licensing sub-committee met yesterday Leeds Civic Hall. The agenda and reports can be read in full here.

  1. Once again,the council has done exactly what it wanted to do for its own reasons(ask for 4-am when you want midnight,as a starting point).As with Pudsey park say you are going to close the bowling green,park etc.
    When all that is really wanted is the visitor centre and greenhouse and it looks like we have retained the park and bowling green when we have lost the aforementioned.STILL WATCHING WHOSE GETTING THE GO AHEAD And LICENSE FOR THE MUCH LOVED AND MUCH MISSED ATTRACTIONS THAT BROUGHT PLEASURE AND REVENUE TO THE PEOPLE OF PUDSEY AND SURROUNDING AREAS.

    • Thanks for your comment Mick. We’re keeping our eye on the visitor and glasshouse situation – I understand several people/organisations have come up with proposals but there is no decision taken yet. I will ask for an update from the council as you’re right, it has gone quiet, so thanks for the nudge.
      Regarding the bowling green. There was a consultation a couple of years ago regarding the proposed closure of a number of bowling greens across Leeds. Following feedback no greens were closed and no fresh plans to close the greens have been brought forward. As far as I know they’re not currently under threat. If that changes we will certainly report it.
