Objection to 24 hour off-license application

I just sent this objection to an application for a 24 hours off-licence, you can also write in objection to licensing@lewisham.gov.uk.

Dear officer,

I here write in objection to the request of a 24 hour license to sell alcoholic beverages for the supermarket at 258-260 Hither Green Lane.
The area is home to St Mungo, a very large hostel for the homeless and such an establishment would have a very disruptive effect on all the work done by those residents of the hostel that are trying to overcome their addiction and improve their lives.
I therefore ask you to reject this request for license.

Kind Regards

Many thanks to Joanne Hall for raising the issue.

    In the London Borough of Lewisham there are already over 20 premises that are licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours a day for consumption off premises.

    For a full list of 24 hour off-licences in Lewisham, see http://www.24houralcohol.co.uk/lewisham-off-licences

    Thanks for the list, very interesting. I see that none of them is in walking distance from St Mungo’s so this objection is still very much valid.
