RECEIVED the application made by Stonegate Pub Co Ltd for the premises situated at The Lamb, 52 Church Street, Edmonton, London, N9 9PA for a new Premises Licence.

1.    The introductory statement of Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:

a.  The Stonegate Pub Company Limited was seeking opening hours of 08:00 to 01:30 and sale of alcohol 10:00 to 01:00 on Friday and Saturday. The full details of all hours and activities applied for were set out on page 3 of the agenda pack.

b.  The seasonal variations originally applied for had since been removed, as set out in the supplementary information.

c.  A premises licence was already in force at the premises, permitting the same opening hours and licensable activities, apart from the additional hour being applied for on Friday and Saturday.

d.  The premises was located in the Edmonton Cumulative Impact Policy (CIP) Area. There was therefore an automatic presumption of refusal of applications outside the CIP core hours of 08:00 to 00:00 for sale of alcohol, and the Police and Licensing Authority had therefore objected to this application.

e.  All conditions had been agreed, as set out in Annex 09.

f.  It was for the applicant to present to the hearing any measures they would take to mitigate the impact, and why they considered the application should be an exception to the CIP policy.

 

2.    The statement of Charlotte Palmer, Senior Licensing Enforcement Officer, including:

a.  The premises was located in one of the borough’s CIP Areas. This was an area where there was already concern about crime and disorder and public nuisance. The onus was on the applicant to demonstrate that the application would have no negative impact if granted.

b.  The condition in respect of last entry time was welcomed.

c.  There had been a number of temporary event notices granted to the premises with no complaints on any of those occasions.

d.  The Licensing Authority did not feel they were in a position to authorise a grant against policy.

 

3.    The statement of PC Martyn Fisher, Metropolitan Police Service, including:

a.  As the venue was within the CIP the Police had to object to the hours applied for.

b.  Research of the last 12 months showed no incidents of crime and disorder relating to the premises, but there were concerns that if extra hours were granted the likelihood would be increased.

 

4.    The statement of Ms Clare Eames, Partner, Poppleston Allen Solicitors, representing Stonegate Pub Company Limited, including:

a.  The applicant wished to demonstrate that they should be an exception to the CIP policy.

b.  The Designated Premises Supervisor, Anne-Marie Hunt, had been running the pub for four years with her husband, and had a 30+ year career in licensed premises so was very experienced. The Area Manager was Colin Brown and Stonegate were a very hands-on company. Stonegate acquired the pub in 2013.

c.  This application was for a new premises licence with the additional two hours per week. Non-standard timings had  ...  view the full minutes text for item 462.
