I’m off to Walsall’s planning committee meeting tonight to speak in support of local residents to get the committee to refuse planning permission for yet another drinks outlet in New Invention; this time at the corner of Baynton Road with Essington Road.
Hopefully it shouldn’t be too difficult a job. The local police support refusal, so does the Area Partnership Team who see it as a threat to all the good work they are doing in reducing drink related anti social behaviour, and the planners also have recommended refusal. So it should be plain sailing, but you never know. The council’s licencing committee actual felt it would be a good idea to grant a drinks licence for the premises against all the evidence. No joined up thinking there then!
Wish me luck.Leave a comment
