BOSSES at a petrol station in Bracknell want to sell alcohol at their site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Bracknell Forest Council licensing chiefs are set to consider the proposal for the BP petrol station on Wokingham Road — but one resident is not happy about the plan.
They wrote in an objection to the authority: “We live at Portman Close, which is directly opposite the BP garage.
“Our front garden is open plan and even with the present opening hour[s] we find empty cans and bottles.
“We sometimes have loud shouting and swearing and think if alcohol is sold for 24 hours it will attract people turned out of pubs who still want to drink.”
The station opens 24 hours a day, seven days a week currently.
Licensing chiefs will decide on the plans at a meeting on Tuesday, January 28.
Should the plans get the green light, booze would have to be consumed off-site.
The plans come after BP also extended the hours it can sell alcohol from at its Crowthorne station on London Road.
Approval for this plan was given by Bracknell Forest councillors despite seven objections from neighbours concerned about an increase in crime and noise coming from the station.
