Application for variation of a premises licence.
RECEIVED the application made by Star Pubs & Bars Limited for the premises situated at The Hop Poles Public House, 320 Baker Street, Enfield, EN1 3LH for a Variation of a Premises Licence (LN/200502201).
1. The introductory statement of Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:
a. The application was for variation of a premises licence held by Star Pubs & Bars Ltd for the Hop Poles public house.
b. The pub was located in a mixed commercial parade on a busy road and with surrounding residential properties.
c. The pub had been operating since before 2005.
d. The application sought extension of hours for licensable activities until 02:00 latest at weekends: this would be an extra two hours for alcohol sales and music, and an additional one hour during the week. This would equate to a reduction in part as the pub was currently able to open 24 hours a day.
e. A number of representations had been received: from the Police, the Licensing Authority and three others referred to as IP1 to IP3, who were local residents. There was also a representation in support received from IP4, who was also a local resident.
f. The parties had not been able to reach agreement on all conditions or hours sought.

i. The representation in support was set out in Annex 8.
j. The Licensing Authority had received more representations, but these had either been invalid or out of time or no further information brought forward, but they had still been brought to the attention of the applicant for information.
k. The final list of conditions agreed were set out in the supplementary agenda pack. Conditions 1 to 16 were agreed by all parties. Conditions 17 to 22 were not yet agreed, in addition to consideration of the final hours.
l. Representatives of the Police sent apologies they were unable to attend the hearing, but had nothing further to add to the written representations.
m. IP1, IP3 and IP4 were not in attendance, but equal consideration should be given to representations in writing or provided orally today.
2. The statement of Charlotte Palmer, Licensing Enforcement Officer, including:
a. She was pleased to see some conditions agreed, and times specified.
b. The Licensing Authority agreed to the start times, but recommended a terminal hour of 01:00 rather than 02:00.
c. This premises was not located in a town centre. There were many residential properties in the surrounding area. Operating until 02:00 may be detrimental to local residents: there were concerns they could be disturbed by people leaving and arriving ... view the full minutes text for item 1011.
