Brighton rejects Sainsbury's licence plan

01 April, 2011

Sainsbury’s has been refused a licence at a controversial new store in Brighton.

The city’s licensing committee rejected the application for the store on the site of a former Taj food-store in St James’s Street, close to the Brighton Pavilion.

The committee ruled that plans to sell drink could have an impact on alcohol-fuelled disorder in the area which is already served by branches of Morrisons, Tesco and a number of independents.

The site has been a source of controversy since Taj closed in January. The unit occupied for several weeks by a group protesting against Sainsbury’s plans to take it over.
