a. This application was for a renewal of a street trading (table and chairs) licence.
b. The premises were on a busy thoroughfare, Green Lanes, with residential roads surrounding.
c. The application asked for like for like renewal of a previous licence, for 6 tables and 18 chairs on the pavement area in front of the property, from 11am to 11pm daily.
d. Two representations had been received against granting renewal of the licence: from the Council’s Enviro Crime Unit (a copy of this representation is included in the agenda pack, Annex 4) and from a local resident to be referred to as IP1 (a copy of this representation is included in the agenda pack, Annex 5). Both argued that Mr Ozan Atesogullazi was not a suitable person to hold a licence.
e. The applicant had responded to the representations and offered further conditions. (Attached as Annex 7 to the agenda pack)
f. Neither of the objectors had agreed to his response.
g. The applicant did not attend the meeting, but was represented by Mr Vasilou, his agent.
h. IP1 was also not present, but members were advised that they could give equal waiting to their written representation.
2. The statement of Vicky Woodgate, representing the Enviro Crime Unit, including:
a. In February the Enviro Crime Unit had received complaints that 6 wooden planters had been left, permanently, on the highway, in front of Mr Ozan Atesogullazi’s property.
b. Vicky Woodgate had tried to contact Mr Atesogullazi on the 12th and 14th of February 2018 to discuss the complaint, left a voicemail message, but had received no response.
c. She had then issued a Section 149 notice informing Mr Atesogullazi that he had to remove the planters within 7 days. He did nothing. On the 21st of March 2018 he asked to be given 3 weeks to remove the planters, but this was unacceptable as he had already had since the 14th February. His response was “see you in court”.
d. Following a site inspection on the 25 March 2018, when the planters were found to still be in place a fixed penalty notice of £150 was issued. This was paid by the applicant but the planters were still not removed.
e. A summons was issued and a court date of 10 May 2018 set. A further site visit was carried out on 9 May 2018 and it was found that the planters had been removed to a service road at the back of the property.
f. Mr Atesogullazi had had three months to move the planters and only did so the day before he was due in court. Throughout the process Mr Atesogullazi’s attitude had been rude and aggressive.
