Hoylake householders object to petrol station's round-the-clock opening bid
11:16am Monday 4th March 2013 in News
PLANS to open a petrol station around-the-clock are being opposed by residents in Hoylake.
The scheme is set to go before Wirral’s licensing committee on Wednesday and would see Hoylake Service Station in Birkenhead Road being allowed to open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
According to documents to be considered by the panel, applicant Rontec Watford Limited wants to extend its current opening times of 6.30am to 10pm.
However, the plans have met with concern from local people that the changes would bring anti-social behaviour and noise during the early hours of the morning.
A 122-strong petition has been submitted along with five individual representation from neighbouring households.
One resident had lodged support for the application, stating licensing objectives would not be “undermined” if it was granted.
The committee will meet at Wallasey Town hall this Wednesday, March 6, at 1pm.
