Application for alcohol sales at Ilford shop to be considered

PUBLISHED: 09:52 14 August 2013 | UPDATED: 09:52 14 August 2013

An Ilford shop will find out next week if it can start selling alcohol.

Owners of the Aruljanee Market, in Green Lane, have applied to Redbridge Council to be able to sell alcohol from 7am to 11pm from Monday to Friday, and from 8am on Saturdays, and 9am to 9pm on Sundays.

The police have recommended refusal of the plans as it is in the Ilford Cumulative Impact Zone and the “applicant has not detailed sufficiently how they plan to promote and meet the licensing objectives”.

The application is due to be considered by the council’s licensing sub-committee on Tuesday at Redbridge Town Hall, in High Road.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
