Application for a new premises licence.
RECEIVED the application made by Mad Husky Events Ltd for the premises situated at Trent Park, Cockfosters Road, EN4 0PS for a new time limited Premises Licence.
1. The Introductory statement of Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:
a. The application was made by Mad Husky Events Ltd for a time limited new premises licence for Trent Park between Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August 2017.
b. The application sought hours of 11:00 to 22:30 on Saturday and 11:00 to 21:30 on Sunday, with entertainment to cease 30 minutes before the close, and sale of alcohol to cease 45 minutes before the close.
c. Similar applications had been made by Found Series Limited in 2015 and 2016.
d. Four representations had been made by local residents and groups, all against the grant of the application. Written representations were shown in Annex 4 and Annex 7 of the officers’ report. The representations were based on all four of the licensing objectives.
e. A full event management plan had been circulated to Members. The agenda pack included extracted documents which were particularly relevant, in Annex 3.
f. The Licensing Authority initially submitted a representation seeking modification of the conditions in the operating schedule as a whole. Those conditions were agreed by the applicant and were set out in Annex 5.
g. The Police had not made any representations.
h. Within representations there were references to dealings with the Parks Team and to the advertisement of the application. The Licensing Authority was satisfied that requirements were met. Interested parties were advised to seek legal advice outside of the hearing, and these matters should not form part of the discussion today.
i. Introductions were made of the attendees at the meeting on behalf of Mad Husky Events Ltd and of the interested parties.
2. The statements from the interested parties, including:
a. On behalf of the Chalk Lane Area Residents Association (CLARA), attention was drawn to the representation included in the agenda pack.
b. This application should be refused as there had been no proof of ability to successfully organise a one day festival with a capacity of 9,999 people. There had been failures in the organisation of the festival in the previous two years. If the sub-committee was minded to grant this application, the maximum audience should be kept below 10,000 and the festival should be one day only.
c. In 2016 a licence was issued for an audience of 12,500 with numerous conditions and the second day of the event was subsequently cancelled, for commercial reasons. Conditions were not met as there was no robust written policy for noise provided to residents before the festival date, and there were no meetings with CLARA in advance. There had been review meetings with the Council on 22/8/16 and with the organisers on 6/9/16 and the notes of both of those meetings had been submitted. Representations included observations from CLARA on the 2016 event, and Facebook feedback from those who had attended (the ... view the full minutes text for item 32.
