THE PENRIDGE SUITE, 470 BOWES ROAD, N11 1NL (REPORT NO. 27) pdf icon PDF 192 KB

Application for a Variation of a Premises Licence.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

RECEIVED the application made by Mr Kyriacos Pitsielis for the premises situated at The Penridge Suite, 470 Bowes Road, London, N11 1NL for a Variation of Premises Licence LN/200501167.

 

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

 

a.    The application was for variation of a premises licence for The Penridge Suite, 470 Bowes Road, N11.

b.    The venue was at the end of a commercial parade, on a busy road, with residential properties above the shopping parade and surrounding.

c.    The venue had been operating since before 2005.

d.    The application sought an extension of licensable hours, as set out in the table on page 80 of the agenda pack, with a latest hour of 01:30am. The table showed the amended times following the applicant’s agreement to Licensing Authority proposals. The extension was essentially 1.5 hours on Friday and Saturday and 1 hour on Sunday. The opening hours and recorded music would be reduced via the variation.

e.    The Monday to Thursday supply of alcohol hours was confirmed as correctly stated at 11:00 – 22:30. This allowed 30 minutes’ drinking up time.

f.     Ten representations had been received, against the application, from local residents, and were set out in Annex 4. Representations were based on prevention of crime and disorder, and public nuisance, and objected to the application in its entirety.

g.    The Licensing Authority had made representation originally. The reduced times and activities proposed were agreed and therefore the Licensing Authority representation was withdrawn.

h.    There were no representations from other responsible authorities.

i.      Agreed conditions were set out in Annex 5.

j.      Apologies had been received from the applicant who had to travel abroad at short notice on a family matter, but was represented by the Premises Manager and a Licensing Consultant. Councillor Christine Hamilton was also in attendance as a witness in support of the applicant.

k.    The ward councillor or other persons were not able to attend the hearing, but full consideration must be given to the written representations.

 

2.    The statement of Desmond Michael, Licensing Consultant, on behalf of the applicant, including:

 

a.    The Penridge Suite was not a nightclub or a disco. It was purely a function suite and catered primarily for family-type events, such as birthdays and christening parties. The clientele was very much family oriented and were not likely to cause nuisance or noise.

b.    Planning restrictions had been dealt with prior to the Licensing application. The Planning Inspectorate had granted a permission on appeal. A Licensing application had then been made for similar hours, and taking regard of the responsible authorities’ representations.

c.    Further to officers’ clarification of amended times agreed, it was confirmed that the hearing should proceed on the basis of the most up to date hours sought by the application as set out in the table on page 80 of the agenda pack. If a further extension to hours was required, another variation application would be made.

d.    The Penridge Suite had operated responsibly since 2003.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 59.
