A Chesterfield beauty salon wants to serve alcohol to customers.

FACEit Aesthetics and Beauty on Sheffield Road has applied to Chesterfield Borough Council for a premises licence.

The application states: "The primary business is to provide beauty treatments. Therefore the sale of alcohol will form only a small part of our business as an 'add on'.

"A Challenge 25 scheme will be adopted to ensure that any alcohol sold will be strictly to over-18s. All alcohol will only be consumed on the premises while our clients are waiting or having their treatments.

"We will refuse to serve alcohol when staff believe that our clients may have already consumed quantities of alcohol.

"Due to the nature of our business with quick turnaround treatments, our clients will only consume small quantities of alcohol.

"The majority of our clients turn up individually or at the most as two friends, never in large groups.

"However, all staff would remain vigilant an monitor alcohol consumption and should the staff feel a person or persons could become a public nuisance, the police would be informed immediately."
