OBJECTIONS have been lodged to a Wirral Post Office’s plans to serve alcohol until late in the evening.

Greasby Post Office, which is also a newsagent, has applied for permission to serve alcohol by retail between 8am and 11pm seven days a week.

The report is set to be discussed by members of Wirral council’s Licensing Act 2003 sub-committee on May 22, with the application made by Dilini Samarasinghe.

According to the report, three objections were received from residents local to the sub-post office store on Greasby Road.

The report said: “The representations relate to noise nuisance that is currently a problem until 5.30pm, when the premises currently closes, and this will exacerbate if the late terminal hour is granted.

“The representations also relate to the cumulative impact of licensed premises in the area where these premises are located.”

The application also requests that the store opens between 6am and 11pm every day.

Its current opening hours are 8.30am or 9am Monday to Friday and 9am until 12.30pm on Saturdays.

It is currently closed on Sundays.

Despite the public objections, there were no representations from police, environmental health or public health.

Attempts were made to contact the store and the council for more information.
