Two applications for licences for the sale of alcohol for consumption have been rejected.

Boston Borough Council’s licensing sub-committee refused applications for the premises licences under the Licensing Act 2003, presented by Mr Byatt on behalf of Mr Talib Abdul Karim for Europe Wine, 36 Red Lion Street, Boston and Mr Uldis Austrums for Food Stop, 1 Vauxhall Road, Boston.

Cllrs Jonathon Noble, Tom Ashton and Stephen Woodliffe heard from police and Mr Byatt on behalf of the applicants for both cases and their objections included concerns about past history and ability to safeguard the licensing objectives.
