A SHOP could be allowed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day despite opposition from a housing charity.

Go Local, at the Gulf petrol station on Green Lane, Yeadon, has applied to extend its premises licence, which currently allows alcohol sales until 11pm Monday-Saturday and 10.30pm on Sundays.

The application also seeks permission for late-night refreshment until 5am.

A report to Leeds City Council’s licensing sub-committee said four letters of objection had been received on the grounds of potential public nuisance.

Some 39 template letters were also received, signed by customers supporting the application.

Among the objectors was the Charity of Hargill Walker, set up in 1923 to provide almshouses for people in need.

Trustees of the organisation were worried that late-night drinkers may congregate in a car park owned by the charity, leading to littering and anti-social behaviour.

Their objection letter said: “The trustees have a legal obligation under their charitable status to protect the interest of their residents and provide them with a safe and secure area to live.”

The report said an agreement had been reached with West Yorkshire Police over licence conditions.

They include a hatch being used to serve customers between 11pm and 6am.

CCTV would be checked regularly and an incident register kept at the premises.

The application to vary the premises licence is listed for a sub-committee hearing on Tuesday (April 30).
