To determine an objection to a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).


The Sub-Committee considered a Temporary Event Notice submitted by Adam Lewis in respect of an event to be held at the Lamb, 73 Brighton Road, Surbiton, KT6 5NF.


The Licensing Officer introduced the matter for determination and informed the Sub-Committee that Adam Lewis had submitted a Temporary Event Notice in respect of the premises known as the Lamb, 73 Brighton Road, Surbiton, KT6 5NF, for an event due to take place on 17 September 2021 between the hours of 17:00 and midnight. The use of the external area is normally restricted to 23:30 hours by condition n. 19 on the Premises Licence.


The notice included the following licensable activities:


? the sale by retail of alcohol

? the provision of regulated entertainment


The Licensing Officer informed the Sub-Committee that a copy of the notice was attached at Annex 1.


The Licensing Officer explained that the premises holds a Premises Licence which permits the provision of regulated entertainment and the sale by retail of alcohol at various times on different days of the week. In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Premises Licence, the outside area may not be used by customers after 23.30 hours. A copy of the Premises Licence was provided in Annex 2.


The Licensing Officer explained that the Metropolitan Police and the Environmental Health (Pollution Control) Team had received a copy of the notification, as Responsible Authorities.

The Licensing Officer confirmed that Temporary Event Notices are not subject to public consultation or advertisement.

The applicant expected the live music to be over by 21:00 and recorded music would be played thereafter. The wedding guests were scheduled to leave by Uber at 23:20 and the applicant had applied for the extra 30 minutes as a buffer. The applicant acknowledged they had had complaints in the past. The committee members asked if the applicant would advise neighbours of the wedding and that music would be being played, which the applicant agreed he would be prepared to do.



The Sub-Committee then heard a submission from John Sibson of Environmental Health (Pollution Control). Members expressed concern there had been complaints in the past and asked what would happen if the applicant did not address complaints. The Environmental Health (Pollution Control) officer advised that their concern was the lateness of the night.
