Additional documents:

Minutes:

RECEIVED the application made by Cayan Foods Centre Ltd for the premises situated at Hertford Food Centre, 236 Hertford Road, Enfield, EN3 5BL for a new Premises Licence.

 

NOTED

 

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

a.    This was a new premises licence application in respect of Hertford Food Centre, 236 Hertford Road.

b.    The applicant was Cayan Foods Centre Limited, and the Director Mr Cuma Aksu and proposed Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) Mr Cemal Topal were in attendance at the hearing.

c.    The application sought 24 hour opening and had initially proposed supply of alcohol from 08:00 to 03:00. Yesterday in correspondence the hours sought for supply of alcohol were formally reduced to 08:00 to 01:00.

d.    The application had been further amended by offering that the hours for supply of alcohol from 01/11/18 would be 08:00 to 00:00 every day. Mr Sutherland, licensing agent for the applicant, would expand on this during the hearing. That condition had not been agreed by the responsible authorities.

e.    A premises licence for the venue was already in force permitting 08:00 to 01:00 opening and supply of alcohol 08:00 to 00:00.

f.     The premises was located within the Enfield Highway Cumulative Impact Policy (CIP) area. There was therefore an automatic presumption of refusal of new applications outside the CIP core hours ie. beyond 00:00.

g.    The Licensing Authority and the Metropolitan Police Service had made objections in respect of the hours sought in the light of the premises’ history, but were satisfied that a licence be granted within the CIP core hours. They maintained that supply of alcohol to 01:00 would be excessive hours.

h.    The proposed conditions set out in Annex 7 were agreed by all parties, with one slight amendment to Condition 2 (11) where it was agreed that digital images must be kept for 28 days rather than 31.

i.      It was for the applicant to present why their application should be exempt from the CIP policy and measures they will take to mitigate the impact.

j.      There were errors in some of the Temporary Event Notices (TENs) dates set out in para 1.18, but they had primarily been over Christmas and New Year and bank holidays.

 

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

a.    She was pleased to see that all recommended conditions had been agreed by the applicant, and that the hours sought had been reduced. However, the Licensing Authority still had objections in respect of prevention of public nuisance and prevention of crime and disorder.

b.    The premises was in a Cumulative Impact Policy (CIP) area. This location was already of concern regarding crime and disorder and public nuisance. There were residential properties above some of the shops in the parade.

c.    The onus was on the applicant to make their case and to demonstrate that their application would have no negative impact. There was no condition proposed or further information submitted by the applicant and no  ...  view the full minutes text for item 566.
