February 12, 2022 4:11 PM

Tesco have applied to Mole Valley District Council for a premises licence at the old Co-op building at the top of Bookham High Street. The consultation closes on 4thMarch.

Full details of the application, including how to comment, can be found online at:


Monica Weller and Elizabeth ()The Bookham Lib Dem team have been out talking to shoppers about the proposals. Most people welcomed the prospect of a new store, which would attract more people to the High Street.

The main concerns raised were:

- the proposed extended hours from 6am to midnight, which would be longer than at the existing Co-op, and Sainsbury's in Fetcham;

- the need to prevent unfair competition with our excellent, local shops in Bookham.

Comments must clearly relate to at least one of the Licensing Act 2003 objectives:

  • Prevention of Crime and Disorder
  • Public Safety
  • Public Nuisance
  • Protection of Children from Harm
