The Licensing Officer introduced the matter for determination and it was noted that the application provided for a Premises Licence for the following: 

 

Provision Of Late Night Refreshment (indoors and outdoors),

Monday to Saturday from 23:00 to midnight, and 

Sunday from 23:00 to 23:30;  

 

Sale by Retail of Alcohol (for consumption on and off the premises), 

Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to midnight, and 

Sunday from 10:00 to 23:30. 

 

Opening Hours 

08.00 to midnight on Monday to Saturday, and 

09.30 to 23.30 on Sunday. 

The Licensing Sub-Committee also noted that Pizza Hut had held a Premises Licence for the premises until this had been surrendered in January 2021. The Applicant had not been in a position to apply for a transfer of the Pizza Hut Premises Licence to the Applicant within the required 28 day period for such transfers. The Premises Licence now applied for had the same terminal hour for licensable activities as the surrendered Premises Licence. 

The Applicant had advertised the application by way of public notice displayed at the premises, and in a local newspaper. The application had also been made available on the Council’s website. All Responsible Authorities received a copy of the application and the Metropolitan Police, as the Responsible Authority for the Prevention of Crime and Disorder licensing objective, and the Council’s Environmental Health (Noise Pollution) Officer, as Responsible Authority for the Prevention of Public Nuisance licensing objective, raised concerns regarding the application. Following further consultation the applicant had addressed the concerns by making amendments to their operating schedule to include agreed conditions from those Responsible Authorities. These amendments were reflected in the conditions shown in Annex 3 of the report before the Licensing Sub-Committee. In light of these amendments, the representations made by Responsible Authorities had been satisfied. 

In accordance with the Council’s Licensing Policy, 635 residents were consulted in writing and informed that an application had been received. 3 valid representations were received from Other Persons. The 3 representations were made by Deepa Veneik (who had made written submissions in 3 different capacities, as a resident, on behalf of London House Property Management Company, and on behalf of Clarence Street Ltd). The representations included matters that relate to all four licensing objectives. 

The Licensing Sub-Committee were addressed by Lana Tricker and Herman Sahota who confirmed details of the application, including their view that the application did not contravene the Council’s Cumulative Impact Policy due to the ‘like for like’ operation proposed in the new Premises Licence. Lana Tricker and Herman Sahota also confirmed the ‘family friendly’ nature of the business and that a limited alcohol offer would only be served with meals for consumption on or off the premises, that extensive training of staff would be in place to ensure compliance with approved conditions of the Premises Licence particularly related to alcohol sales and litter collection, that an exclusive contract for take-away deliveries was in place with Deliveroo and these would be conducted from the designated motorcycle bay at the front of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 15.
