A couple of issues that have caused concern to residents of Moreton previously, have reared their heads again.
The 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.
The second issue concerns the Royal Taste takeaway on Pasture Road. The premises is only allowed to remain open until 11:30pm every night. In the last 3 years there have been numerous applications to planning to extend the hours of opening, all of them being refused. The last refusal was in March this year, and the applicant was clearly not happy. Anyway the applicant has now submitted an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate, in the hope that they will overturn Wirral’s Planning Committee’s decision to refuse any extension. You can read more about the appeal by clicking here. If anyone wants to make representation to the Planning Inspector regarding this issue they must do so in writing (in triplicate) by 16th September.
