An application for a new off licence in Wisbech has been withdrawn – just days before it was due to go before Fenland District Council’s licensing committee.
Dedde Ltd’s application to open a new off licence on Norfolk Street, Wisbech, was criticised by alcohol licensing officer for Fenland PC Phil Richardson, who said the shop would “sit in an area where street drinking is prolific and of public concern.”
The new store would have been in an area home to a number of other off licences, which PC Richardson described as a “concern to the town’s populace.”
The application was due to go before the licensing committee on Monday February 29, but the Wisbech Standard has learnt that the application has since been withdrawn.
