Application for a new premises licence.

(Report No.220)

Additional documents:

Minutes:

RECEIVED the application made by A Man About A Dog Limited (AMAAD) for a new Premises Licence at the premises known as and situated at Trent Park, Cockfosters Road, EN4 0PS.

 

NOTED, that Councillor Chris Bond (Chair) referred to the ruling of the case of “AEG Presents Limited v London Borough of Tower Hamlets”. Councillor Bond stated that he did not have the powers to apply a time limited licence when the applicant sought an indefinite licence. If the sub-committee was satisfied that the conditions, times and activities were suitable for one year, they should be strong enough to grant the licence for any period of time – the test was the same, regardless of the length of period of a licence. The review processes were also noted as detailed in the minutes below.

 

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

 

a.    The application was for a new premises licence by A Man About a Dog Limited (AMAAD) for Trent Park, Cockfosters Road, EN4 0PS. The premises licence did not seek to be time limited. The application sought to operate annually with two event days taking place over one weekend but this year the event would last for one day only. The maximum capacity at any one time was 24,999. The operating hours and conditions were as set out in the report of the Principal Licensing Officer and the annexes attached to the report; and were outlined in detail at the meeting.

b.    The history of the premises licences held at Trent Park and examples of previous large scale events were highlighted as set out in the report. This application was for the largest capacity to date.

c.    Representations had been made, against the application, by 25 local residents, resident groups and park groups, and were referred to as IP1 to IP26 (IP18 had been withdrawn) and were attached as Annex 13 of the report. The grounds of representation had included the prevention of crime and disorder; the prevention of public nuisance; public safety and the prevention of children from harm. The Licensing Authority had not made any representations in respect of this application. The Metropolitan Police had made representations in respect of this application, namely seeking modification of conditions. The applicant had agreed those conditions, and subsequently the representation had been withdrawn.

d.    Annexes 6 to 11 of the report were noted.

e.    Annex 14 set out the proposed conditions.

f.     Enfield’s Safety Advisory Group (SAG) had produced a report for the Licensing Sub-Committee which was set out in Annex 12 of the report.
