A new deli and bistro set to open in Fulwood is applying for a drinks licence.Advertisement
Penwortham-based Slice of Sicily is expanding onto Garstang Road and wants to serve alcohol between 9.30am and 11pm every day.
Owned by Ettore Criscenti it is due to open on the site of the former Wineyard & Deli and will sell a mixture of Italian produce as well as house a cafe, wine bar and takeaway.
The application has drawn objections from one local resident who says the licensing hours will be “intrusive and disturbing to our home life.”
The objector writes: “It isn’t a pleasant prospect for 365 days each year, particularly as this part of Fulwood is mainly a residential area and we already have problems with noise from people leaving the Black Bull and depositng empty bottles and drinks cans in the borders at the front of our house.”
Lancashire Police have asked the premises should have an up to date CCTV system and a Challenge 25 scheme should be in place.
The licensing application will be heard by Preston City Council’s licensing sub committee on Friday 2 August at 10am.
