Application for a New Premises Licence – Broadwick Venues Ltd, Events Application.
RECEIVED the application made by Broadwick Venues Limited for the premises situated at The Drumsheds, Meridian Water, Unit 4-6B Orbital Business Park, 5 Argon Road, Edmonton, N18 3BW for a New Premises Licence.
1. The introduction by Ellie Green, Principal Licensing Officer, including:
a. This was a new premises licence application for events licensing by Broadwick Venues Ltd at the Drumsheds, Meridian Water, Edmonton.
b. The applicant now sought a maximum capacity of 7,000.
c. The premises licence was to be time limited to January 2024.
d. The application sought provision for various regulated activities as set out in the officers’ report, and subsequently amended to finish at 03:00 indoors rather than 06:00.
e. Initially, seven representations were received from Responsible Authorities and other parties including the London Fire Brigade and Enfield’s Safety Advisory Group (SAG). The Fire Service (IP4) withdrew their representation yesterday as their requirements had been met. Subsequently, the SAG representation (IP6) had also been withdrawn, and the applicant had submitted conditions with agreed SAG wording, set out in Annex 34 of the agenda pack.
f. There were five outstanding representations, including the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) (IP2) and Tottenham Hotspur Football & Athletic Co Ltd (THFC) (IP3), who were in attendance at the meeting. Three local residents who made representations (IP1, IP5 and IP8) were unable to attend but the panel were reminded that these representations must be given equal consideration as if they were in attendance.
g. Mediation had been ongoing throughout the process, and final submitted conditions agreed with SAG were produced in Annex 34 and conditions re-submitted by the MPS were produced in Annex 35.
2. The statement on behalf of the applicant, Broadwick Venues Ltd, represented by Paddy Whur, including:
a. In respect of the agreement reached with the MPS, Annex 35 set out the schedule and amendments to timings, capacities and conditions. The application had originally been open-ended with a 9,999 capacity. Heed had been paid to what the MPS said, and the transport issues, and the need for the applicant to prove themselves. There had been a reduction in capacity sought to 7,000 and to the maximum number of events to be sought in each category until the licence expired in 2024.
b. Suggested conditions had been accepted in principle in totality. There was some work to do to avoid repetition in the conditions and to finesse some of their wording and to ensure they were all considered enforceable by the Responsible Authorities.
c. Gary Grant, Legal Counsel for Metropolitan Police, confirmed the MPS agreement with the applicant, and that subject to conditions set out in Annex 35 they had no objections to granting of the licence.
d. One amendment was proposed to the final condition: Condition 23 in Annex 35 with words to be inserted to the effect that if there was an insurmountable clash of events and this could not be resolved, as a ‘backstop’ the Police would consult both relevant parties and with those ... view the full minutes text for item 107.
