Booze permit review for Hatfield off-licence
AN off-licence is having its alcohol permit reviewed at a borough council meeting today (Wednesday).
The police have asked for Hatfield Wine Stores’ premises licence to be put before councillors on the grounds of the prevention of crime and disorder.
The St Albans Road East shop will be the subject of a licensing sub-committee hearing which could see it lose its licence.
A report to the committee stated the police believed there was a history of prolonged criminal activity, some of which was directly linked to the licensable activity permitted.
Although licensing officer Stewart Budd had met the licence holders, due to the severity of the offences the review still needed to go ahead.

The meeting is open to the public and starts at 2pm today (Wednesday) at the Acorn Suite, Campus West, WGC.
