Moreton Matters – Licensing and Planning

A couple of issues that have caused concern to residents of Moreton previously, have reared their heads again.  

grangemoretonThe first one is a Licensing issue, and relates to the Grange Pub on Hoylake Road, the pub is looking to vary their licensing activities.  There are a few changes being requested, however by far the most contentious will be the request to extend the hours to sell alcohol, and subsequently remain open until 1am on Friday’s and Saturday’s, and until 12:30am Sunday to Thursday.    You can read a summary of the changes requested by clicking here.   If anyone wants to make representation to the Council they can do so by clicking here.   All comments must be submitted by 21st September.

  1. I can see no reason why these applications should be refused. Everything is becoming far too regulated accross the board. It appears that people object to things as a matter of course with no particular reason.

  2. A pub is a pub and they should close at reasonable hours like they do now. We don’t need longer hours, or for takeaways. Its just grab, grab, grab and stuff the communities around them.

  3. I live in Acton Lane and the Grange is our local. It is a very well run pub and the new owner has done a lot to re-instate the pub into the local community after the disaster of the previous manageress.
