Yesterday morning I was at Wallasey Town Hall for the licensing application made by Sabs Kebabs on Hoylake Road. Sabs had applied to Wirral’s Licensing department to stay open until the early hours of the morning, and I was at the appeal to speak on behalf of concerned residents who had opposed the application.
Although Merseyside Police did not make an official representation, our local neighbourhood Inspector did write expressing his concerns about existing levels of anti-social behaviour and saying that if this license was approved it would add to the problems.
After hearing all the represenations from applicant and objectors the Licensing Panel took around 25 minutes to determine that the licence should not be granted and the premises should only stay open until 11pm Monday to Saturday and should not open at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays. This decision matches exactly the planning conditions that Wirral imposed.
