Hi Peter,
As I understand, unless its written into a premises' licensing conditions individulally, there would be no such requirements. However as a local resident you could call for a licensing review to the licensing department if it was seen to go against any of the Licesning act 2003 objectives:
1. the prevention of crime and disorder,
2. public safety,
3. prevention of public nuisance, and
4. the protection of children from harm

However, protection of public health was the 5th objective of the Scottish licensing act that was missed out to many people's consternation.

However Oldham have been doing some intersting work lately to try and address this kind of practice, see below:

Let us know any progress.
Best, James

Is there any rule as to the designated area where alcohol can be displayed for sale?
In my supermarket large quantities of drink are displayed at the entrance.
