Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
MFG site denied 24-hour off licence
08 March, 2019

MFG Ruthin in Denbighshire has been refused a 24-hour off licence. It already has a licence to sell alcohol from 6am to 11pm but wanted to extend this to reflect its 24-hour trading.

Earlier this week, the three members of Denbighshire’s sub-licensing committee granted the site permission to sell late night refreshments (hot drinks but not hot food) but refused the 24-hour off licence.

The council received nine letters about the application from residents worried about noise and anti-social behaviour. The forecourt is close to three pubs and there were concerns that the pubs’ customers would move on to the site, which is surrounded by flats and houses, and carry on drinking.

But licensing specialist Robert Botkai, who represented MFG Ruthin said that in the vast majority of cases fears that residents have, never materialise.

Has the Government's shock announcement to bring forward the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel-powered vehicles - as well as hybrids - to 2035 or even earlier caused concern and disruption to your future forecourt development plans?
