New micropub planned for Saltdean but some neighbors object

AN EXPERIENCED Brighton pubkeeper is planning to set up a micro-pub selling craft beers and real ales in an empty building in a Saltdean shopping parade.

Julie Karuzas, 58, has applied for a liquor license for a place called Sheridans at 130 Lustrells Vale.

But two neighbors have protested. One of them submitted a petition with 17 names.

Neither Brighton and Hove City Council’s approval team nor Sussex Police have objected to the application because it conforms with the council’s approval guidelines.

However, as two people objected, a three-member council approval panel is expected to rule on the application on Wednesday, October 5.

Ms Karuzas, who runs The Barley Mow on St George’s Road in Kemp Town, has applied for an on-site and take-away licence.

The licensed hours of operation would be from 12:00pm to 10:00pm each day, although the premises may not be open for all of these hours.

The premises used to be the offices of a scaffolding company and before that a snack bar.

One objector, details of which have been redacted by the council on its website, said: “Even if a licensee complies with the terms of a license, if one is granted, alcohol consumption on our residential street will lead to an increase in various reportable incidents of crime in our neighborhood.”

“This includes public order offences, where intoxicated guests leaving the premises may speak or shout at each other using offensive language.

“For residents living in the apartments immediately above, shoppers visiting the street and children walking to and from school, any resulting public order violations will have repercussions.”

The other objector, whose details were also redacted, said: “As much as a licensee tries to encourage good behavior, it will not be aware of what happens outside its premises or after hours.

“The majority of customers may be polite, calm and considerate, but there will inevitably be a few who cause problems.”

Both objectors referred to Lustrells Vale as a “drinking problem area” but Ms Karuzas said she had checked with Sussex Police and found no such designation.

She said she planned to run the venue with her husband. The couple has more than 40 years of experience in license trading.

Ms. Karuzas, a director of JAF Inns, said: “We propose a micro-pub whose ethos promotes peace, community and independent products. These products are not sold cheaply or with discounted offers.”

The Council Licensing Panel meeting is scheduled to start at 10am on Wednesday 5 October. It is planned to be webcast on the Council’s website. New micropub planned for Saltdean but some neighbors object
