1.    The introduction by Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:

a.    Fancy Fair Markets Limited had made an application for Land, Bramley Sports Ground, Chase Side, London, N14 4AB.

b.    The proposal was for the licence to be used annually with no more than four event days per year. This year, the proposed event was from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 May 2019 – the second May Bank Holiday weekend.

c.    The application sought a maximum capacity of 9,999 people at any one time.

d.    The application sought licensable activities Friday to Monday 10:00 to 22:00 and sale of alcohol 10:00 to 21:30, as amended through mediation.

e.    The officers’ report set out licensing hours at three nearby premises for information. This application was the first of any kind for this site.

f.     There had been 151 representations received from other persons, including local residents, sports associations and ward councillors, all against granting the application, and based on all four licensing objectives. Copies of the IP representations were set out in Annex 6 of the agenda. The road names of those objecting were listed in para 3.4 of the officers’ report.

g.    In response to the representations, the applicant provided documents set out in Annex 4, 7, 10 and 11 in the agenda.

h.    The Metropolitan Police and Licensing Authority sought the removal of alcohol off sales and modification of conditions. These were agreed by the applicant and subsequently the responsible authorities’ representations were withdrawn.

i.      Further conditions were also offered by the applicant. Annex 8 in the agenda set out the final list of proposed conditions.

j.      The proposals had been considered by the Safety Advisory Group (SAG), and an overview report was included as Annex 5 in the agenda.

k.    It was for the Licensing Sub Committee (LSC) to determine whether the application supported the licensing objectives.

l.      The applicant was represented by Counsel Sarah Le Fevre. The Festival directors were also present, as well as the Event Management and Safety Consultant, and the Principal Consultant, Big Sky Acoustics Ltd.

m.  Local residents making objections were referred to as IP reference numbers. 24 had confirmed their attendance at the hearing and more were also present. The spokespeople were confirmed as Peter Basham and Beverley Spinks. Councillor Edward Smith, Cockfosters Ward Councillor, was also present to represent the objectors.

n.    In response to the Chair’s query, Ellie Green confirmed recent case law in respect of the ruling in the case of ‘AEG Presents Limited v London Borough of Tower Hamlets’. This meant that the LSC did not have the powers to apply a time limited licence when the applicant sought an indefinite licence. If the LSC 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  ...  view the full minutes text for item 1107.
