BOSSES at a Burton petrol station have applied for the chance to sell alcohol 24 hours a day.

Licensing chiefs at East Staffordshire Borough Council revealed that Shell UK Oil Products Limited had submitted an application for the chance to sell booze around the clock at its filling site in Belvedere Road.

The proposals, if passed, could also see people allowed to buy hot drinks until 5 o’clock in the morning, every day of the week.

Now, members of the public are being urged to have their say on whether they think that the application should be given the go-ahead.

Julian Mott, borough councillor for Horninglow, said: “I have had two residents already contact me expressing concerns about these proposals.

“I am sure that Horninglow and Eton Parish Council will take a close look at the plans and officially respond to them.”

The application states: “Shell UK Oil Products Limited have applied for a licence for their garage on Belvedere Road for the sale of late-night refreshment and alcohol for consumption off the premises.

The requested hours are as follows:

l Provision of late-night refreshment from 11pm to 5am from Monday to Sunday for hot drinks only;

l Provision for the sale of alcohol for 24 hours a day from Monday to Sunday; and

l To increase opening hours to also change to be 24 hours.

It has been revealed that the borough council’s licensing team have requested further information from the applicant’s agent in relation to the primary use of the premises.

Anyone can comment by emailing licensing@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk by June 6. Further information about the application is available by calling 01283 508692.
