Welwyn Garden City post office bids for booze licence
PLANS to turn a busy post office into a convenience store are a step nearer.
Chirag Arvindbhai Patel, owner of the town centre post office in Howardsgate, WGC, has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council for permission to sell alcohol on site.
If approved, the application would allow booze to be sold for consumption off-site between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.
News that the post office would be converted into a convenience store was first broken in the Welwyn Hatfield Times two years ago.
An illustration of how the store would look, which is included in the application, indicates it will be turned into a Costcutter.

However, it also shows the post office counters will remain in place.
The application is currently out to public consultation until July 12.
