Sainsbury’s applies for late licence to serve alcohol

Residents might be interested to know that Sainsbury’s in Eltham have applied for a late licence to serve alcohol until midnight from Monday to Sunday.  This is an extension from the 11pm which it is currently allowed to serve alcohol until and unfortunately, it appears there is no clear explanation for this application in the public domain.

Residents only have until 17th August to respond if they have any questions or concerns.


The formal notification can be found at and if you would like to object, the Council’s Licensing Department can be contacted at:


Fourth floor, The Woolwich Centre,
35 Wellington Street,
Woolwich SE18 6HQ


Tel:  020 8921 8018/8374

UPDATE (12th Aug 2017)

I have been informed that as the Council has received 4 representations against this application, it will be reviewed at a sub-committee hearing which will probably take place in September.

If any residents or other interested parties would like to make a comment or representation, it is worth visiting the Council’s website at:
