Alcohol license appeal update

As you may know, Tesco plan to appeal against the decision not to allow it to be an additional alcohol licensee on Mill Road, despite the statement on their website which says: “We do not apply for licences in areas with known disorder issues.” Mill Road is a Cumulative Impact Zone, which means that new license applications are normally refused, and Tesco should be no different – but they have appealed.

We understand that the hearing for this is likely to be in the new year, but we (and other objectors) have no further details as yet. We will send out an update to supporters when such details arrive.

This will mean that the 14th Tesco-owned store in Cambridge will have no opportunity for Christmas drink sales, reducing the profitability of its outlet on Mill Road further.
