Help Stop 24 Hour Drinks Sales in Askew Road
Local people urged to attend council meeting
Shepherd's Bush residents are being urged to attend a council meeting this evening, Monday January 17 to protest about an application from the NISA store in Askew Road for a 24 hour drinks licence.
Cathnor Park Area Action Group are warning that there will be an increase in anti-social behaviour in the area if the Licensing Sub-Committee grants the shop the go ahead.
The group is urging as many residents as possible to attend the meeting, which begins at 6pm at Hammersmith Town Hall in King Street.
The group have also been supported by a statement from PC Calvin Chow of Askew Safer Neighbourhoods Team.
He says: " Street drinkers posed such a nuisance to public that Hammersmith and Fulham council decided to impose an alcohol exclusion zone throughout the entire borough from November 2006, deterring people from drinking in the public areas.
" This is increasingly difficult and time consuming to enforce as we are finding off-licences selling alcohol during late hours till early mornings. Many public order offences that occur between the hours of midnight till mornings are often alcohol related."
