Wickersley licensing update

Since we passed the Cumulative Impact Zone last month, there continue to be pressures from businesses in the Tanyard area to further remove restrictions and increase night time activity.

The Mason’s recently applied to have removed the planning condition which prevents it from hosting outdoors music. We objected to their application, and they received no supporting comments from residents during the consultation. Planners agreed with us, and the planning restriction remains in place.

Meanwhile, Licensing staff have received an application to allow late night refreshment (until half past midnight, seven days a week) and alcohol sales (for consumption both on and off site, until midnight seven days a week) from the former butchers shop at the end of The Grove. This is planned to be a new late night “restaurant”, The Seasons. You can read the application here. We remain concerned that further late night activity – a 17th licensed premise within a 300 metre distance – would be harmful to the local area. You can read our formal objection by clicking here.
