OBJECTIONS have been lodged to the proposed sale of alcohol at a newsagent’s in Burncross Road, Chapeltown.
City councillors are due to decide today (Thursday) whether to grant a licence allowing drink to be sold up to 10pm at UK News and Booze.
Ecclesfield Parish Council says it supports residents’ protests on the basis of increases in anti-social behaviour, noise, litter and road safety.
Objectors say the area is already “heavily populated” with licensed premises and has under-age drinking problems.
The applicants say measures to prevent crime and disorder include CCTV and preventing people congregating inside or outside the premises.
