Burger Plus, 46 Old London Road, Kingston KT2 6QF pdf icon PDF 3 MB

Minutes:

The Licensing Officer introduced the matter for determination and informed the Sub- Committee that David Wilson of A2Z Licensing had applied for a new premises licence in respect of the premises known as Burger Plus, 46 Old London Road, Kingston upon Thames, KT2 6QF.

 

The application sought the grant of the following:

 

? the provision of late night refreshment (indoors), Monday to Sunday from 23:00 hours to 04:00 the following morning.

 

The Licensing Officer explained that the premises previously held a Premises Licence that permitted the provision of late night refreshment from 23:00 hours to 01:00 the following morning, daily. However the licence lapsed when the limited company that held the licence went into administration and the licence was not transferred within the statutory 28-day period.

 

The Licensing Officer explained that the applicant had advertised the application, as required, by way of the statutory poster at the premises and by advertisement in a local newspaper, and that the application had also been advertised on the Council’s website for the full consultation period. In addition, some 243 addresses were consulted in writing and informed that an application had been received. 3 valid representations were received from Other Persons. The representations made reference to matters that related to all four licensing objectives.

 

It was confirmed that all Responsible Authorities had received a copy of the application. 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 initially raised concerns regarding the application. Following further consultation, the applicant had addressed the concerns by making amendments to their operating schedule. These amendments were reflected in the conditions shown in Annex 3 of the licensing report. In light of these amendments, the concerns raised by the Metropolitan Police and the Council’s Environmental Health (Noise Pollution) Officer had been satisfied and no representations were received by Responsible Authorities

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee first heard from the applicant who explained that the application was to provide late night refreshment from 23:00 until 04:00 the following morning. Business would take place during the day via the entrance in Old London Road. Under the previous licence which had lapsed, the premises could trade until 01:00 daily and this application would cut back the hours the premises trades using the entrance on Old London Road to 23:00, which they hoped would resolve historic issues with local residents. He emphasised that the historic issues were the responsibility of previous occupiers of the premises. Burger Plus was a franchised business and Mr Habib Noori, the owner of the Burger Plus brand, had taken over these premises to run himself, which would hopefully resolve historic issues. The premises were unusual in having two entrances, one in Old London Road and one in Fairfield North. The entrance in Old London road would be closed at 23:00 and would not be open to the public or delivery riders after those hours.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
