An application for a Retail Liquor Licence and a Music and Dancing Licence for a proposed pool hall in Windsor Park has not been granted by the Liquor Licensing Board.
The application was heard at the recent annual meeting of the board at Custom’s Headquarters and the decision was made following closed deliberations by the board.
In making the application on behalf of Carlos Jackson, spokesperson Kerriann Robinson said the licences were being sought to open up a pool hall on a three-acre site in Short Lane, Windsor Park.
She said this was being done as part of an attempt to bring up the value of this area.
The building for the proposed pool hall is there already, she said, describing it as being off Mango Turn.
There is nothing now in this building, which is the property of Ms Martha Jackson, she said.
She presented to the board letters from the community stating why they would like a pool hall for the community.
When asked by board member Craig Nixon if there was any application to planning for the change of use for that building, she said the plans needed to be found first and it was subject to planning approval.
Mr. Nixon also asked if three acres meant there was adequate space for parking, which Ms Robinson noted that there was.
