Subway asks for late-night opening in Potters Bar

SANDWICHES and other refreshments could be sold late into the night if the bosses of a fast food restaurant in Potters Bar get their way.

The franchisees of Subway, based at Metropolitan House, in Darkes Lane, have asked Hertsmere Borough Council for permission to sell takeaway food between 11pm and 4am Monday to Saturday.

They also want to extend their opening hours until 1am on Sundays.

News of these proposals is likely to alarm residents who are already concerned about late night anti-social behaviour in Darkes Lane.

However, the licensing application does include a number of measures aimed at preventing such problems, including the provision of CCTV cameras and a door supervisor who would work between 11pm and 4am.
