An alcohol licence has been granted to the Tesco Express store due to open in Furze Platt.
The store, which is in the process of being built at the former Golden Harp pub site in Furze Platt Road, will be permitted to serve alcohol from 6am to 11pm seven days a week.
The decision was made last night at the Royal Borough licensing panel sub-committee meeting.
Objections were raised to the licence prior to the decision by residents including Michael and Sian New of Courthouse Road
Their concerns included the potential for the sale of alcohol to increase anti-social behaviour in the area and the 'threat' the sale of alcohol during school hours will pose to children.
A date when the store will open is yet to be confirmed.
