Subway store gets go-ahead for 3am opening
recently-opened Subway store has been granted a new premises licence
so that it can open until 3am at weekends - despite a petition
signed by 16 residents objecting to the proposal.
first reported earlier this
month that Mike Bond, the owner of the Burnham franchise,
had applied to Sedgemoor District Council to request the store
be able to stay open on Fridays and Saturdays until 3am, and until
midnight from Sunday to Thursday.
of the district council's licensing panel considered the application
at their latest meeting and have given the plans the go-ahead,
subject to several conditions.
Licensing Officer Tony Baker told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The
application was granted subject to three conditions. Firstly,
the store must install and use CCTV to satisfy local police. Secondly,
suitable waste bins must be installed and emptied regularly and,
thirdly, new signs must be installed requesting customers leave
quietly at night to avoid disturbing nearby residents."
Bond welcomed the decision and told Burnham-On-Sea.com the store
hopes to introduce the new opening times from Easter on a trial
basis over the tourist season.
added: "We will comply with the council's conditions and
also do everything we can to avoid customers disturbing local
opened in Burnham on January 21st, more than a year after its
search first started to find suitable premises in the town centre.
The store has been very busy since opening.
