AN application to run a late-night alcohol delivery service seven days a week from Greenham Business Park has been withdrawn at the last minute.
Plans for the business, Alcoholla, were due to be discussed at a West Berkshire Council licensing sub-committee meeting at 2pm today (Friday).
However that meeting has now been cancelled after the applicant withdrew the plans this morning.
Alcoholla, the brainchild of Newbury resident Sarah Yachim, planned to run from 6pm to 4am, Monday to Sunday, with the flexibility of operating for longer hours over the Christmas period.
Orders would have been paid for at the point of order with no cash payments accepted on delivery.
The applicant said it would help reduce drink-driving and late night anti-social behaviour – but nearby residents had expressed concern over noise levels and the proposed hours of operation.
It is not yet clear why the applicant chose to withdraw the plans.
