A new European supermarket planned for Ribbleton Lane is facing objections to selling alcohol.

Europa Delikatesy is due to open in the St Matthews area but a petition of 133 signatures has been handed in opposing the plan.

Mohammed Rasul Kader has applied for the licence to sell alcohol from 8am to 11pm every day of the week.

Agents applying on behalf of Mr Kader said a CCTV system would be installed, regular litter patrols and a refusals register kept.

Passionate letters objecting to the licence have been written to the licensing department.

One states: “There are too many shops around that sell alcohol and one more would add to all the problems.

“Gangs of youths gather causing anti-social behaviour.

“I would be very frightened to go out as gang of youths would intimidate me.”

Two other letters say the road has traffic problems and the supermarket would increase this.

Councillors on the licensing sub-committee will decide if Europa can be granted a licence on Tuesday 3 June.

You can view the full licensing documents on the council website.
