I note the notice in the Advertiser, and on the premises, namely, One Quay House, 10 High Street, Swanage, for an application for yet another ‘sale of alcohol license’ both on and off the premises. Examination of the said premises they look too small to have a restaurant license, so they want to sell alcohol for STREET consumption up until midnight 7 days a week!
The 250 yards from Seymer Road along the Lower High Street already has at least a dozen licensed premises and is the seat of 95% of all anti social behaviour in Swanage.
With publicans acting responsibly to control under age or excessive consumption of alcohol the only purpose of such a licence must be to save the under-age drinkers nicking their fuel from their parents stock and having to carry it all the way to the Lower High Street.
In conclusion I note that the applicant who live as far away from the Lower High Street as is possible whilst still being in Swanage so why don’t they apply for a license in their part of town ?
