Police concerns over new shops
Councillors are to consider whether two businesses – an off licence and grocery store – should be allowed to open in Narborough Road.
J Keshtkar has asked the city council for a licence to open an off licence and takeaway near the junction with Gaul Street.
He wants to stay open until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays and 1am during the rest of the week.
A decision whether to grant him a premises licence will be made at a hearing on Thursday.

Councillors will also consider whether to grant Izabela Horbacz a licence for a new Polish grocery store in Narborough Road, opposite the junction with Ruding Road.
She has asked for permission to open and sell alcohol between 9am and 10pm all week.
However, both Leicestershire Police and the city council have raised concerns over the applications, because the area is considered a "cumulative impact zone" – meaning an area which already has a lot of premises which provide alcohol.
