CHARTIST YARD: Application submitted for late night licence
A container-style food courtyard in Rogerstone could be granted a licence for alcohol, entertainment, and late-night refreshments.
DIY store, What! Stores submitted the application and could have a decision next week on whether the licence will be granted.
The food courtyard will be in What! Store’s car park, Chartist Way, and could benefit from a bar, coffee shop and a pop-up cinema.
If approved, alcohol could be sold on the premises from 11am to 11pm from Sunday to Thursday and between 11am and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
The application also requests extended hours over New Year’s until 2.30am on New Year’s Day.
Late-night refreshments and entertainment including films, live music, recorded music and dance performances could also take place between the same hours those requested for alcohol sales.
One objection has been received from a Rogerstone resident who has raised concerns over anti-social behaviour and an increase in traffic.
Newport council’s licensing committee will hear the application on April 23.
