A licensing application for an M Local shop in Maldon will be heard by councillors.

Morrisons applied for the alcohol licence at the old post office in the High Street last month.

Its planned opening hours are every day from 6am to midnight.

Most M Locals are open 7am to 11pm or 6am to 10pm.

Maldon District Council’s licensing committee is due to make a decision on March 3.
