SIGNS have gone up on the front of a building in Hereford which looks set to open as an late-night off-licence.

Pwya Mohamed Mirza, an Iranian national, applied for a licence so Hereford Off Licence, of 22 Commercial Street, could sell alcohol from 7am until 2am each day.

Between 11pm and 2am, all sales will be made through a security hatch, the application said. The shop will have internal CCTV.

Signs will be displayed asking customers to be considerate of nearby residents, and bins provided for litter.


The premises, opposite the former JJB Sports, was previously used as a clothing store under the name Ubu, and as a Turkish barber.

Signs have since gone up on the front of the shop, with a hand-written sign saying "we are open soon".

Comments could be made on the application until June 28.
