Application for a Review of Premises Licence.
RECEIVED the application made by Licensing Authority for a review of the Premises Licence (LN/200800580) held by Mr Aydin Salman at the premises known as and situated at Enfield Food & Wine, 37-43 Kempe Road, Enfield, EN1 4QT.
1. The introduction by Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:
a. Having met with the License Holder previously, where they conversed in English, Ellie checked if everything said during this hearing required translating. The License Holder responded via the Interpreter “yes please”.
b. The application was to consider a review application relating to the premises known as Enfield Food & Wine, 37 – 43 Kempe Road, Enfield, EN1 4QT.
c. This premises licence had a history of note; as set out on page 23 of the agenda pack, Mr Baris Salman was the premises licence holder (PLH) from 9 October 2008 until 29 December 2008, when it was transferred to the current PLH, Mr Aydin Salman.
d. However, Mr Baris Salman was also the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS), from 9 October 2008 and was still the DPS even when Mr Aydin Salman became premises licence holder and remained as DPS until 10 October 2011. Then Mr Aydin Salman became the DPS.
e. Since the report was published, it had become apparent that Mr Baris Salman had been the joint premises licence holder with Mr Korkmaz, and was also DPS of another premises, namely Ordnance Supermarket, 115 Ordnance Road, Enfield.
f. In October 2011, a minor variation of the Ordnance Supermarket licence was granted adding on conditions at the request of the Council following the seizure of illicit alcohol found at Ordnance Supermarket.
g. Three years later, more counterfeit alcohol was seized from Ordnance Supermarket, and the Licensing Authority submitted a review application. At the hearing on 21 January 2015, the licence was revoked, but the decision was subsequently appealed. It did not go to court as a consent order was agreed, suspending the licence for 3 months instead.
h. In January 2016, the premises licence was transferred to Mr Mehmet KOLO, who also varied the licence to be the named DPS from 13 January 2016. It is still worth noting the activity at this premises since that transfer and vary DPS application.
i. In December 2016, a minor variation was granted to add on conditions, namely, to prevent the supply of illicit goods, at the request of the Licensing Authority.
j. In January 2017 an application was made by the Licensing Authority for the review of Ordnance Supermarket as the premises have been found again to be supplying illicit goods. At the hearing on 8 March 2017, the licensing sub-committee determined that the licence be revoked. This decision was also appealed but subsequently withdrawn as the licence was transferred to Mr Serdar Tas, who remains the PLH at Ordnance Supermarket. Mr Tas submitted a minor variation at the request of the Licensing Authority to add the following condition to the licence:
