Minutes:

RECEIVED the application made by ENFIELD COUNCIL’S LICENSING AUTHORITY for a review of the Premises Licence (LN/201500949) held by MR ARJAN BORUFI at the premises known as and situated at Broomfield Coffee Bar, 64 Aldermans Hill, LONDON, N13 4PP.

 

NOTED

 

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

 

a.  This was a review of the licence of Broomfield Coffee Bar, 64 Aldermans Hill N13.

b.  The premises licence had been in place since January 2016 for the venue, then known as Bambinos restaurant.

c.  A transfer application was granted in October 2017 to name Mr Arjan Borufi as the premises licence holder (PLH), and in November 2017 to name Mr Borufi as the designated premises supervisor (DPS). No objections were received to those applications.

d.  Yesterday, a minor variation application was received in respect of the bifold door, and conditions regarding noise prevention, which was available to Members if required.

e.  Prior to this minor variation application, since the transfer no other applications had been submitted, so the licensable activities remained the same as originally granted. All licensable activities had a terminal hour of midnight. Alcohol was for on sales only.

f.  On 23 April 2020 a review application was submitted by the Licensing Authority, on the grounds that the prevention of crime and disorder and prevention of public nuisance licensing objectives were not being met. The application sought to remove live and recorded music from the licence, in response to complaints regarding loud music. The full application was set out in Annex 2 of the officers’ report.

g.  Sixteen local residents (IP1 to IP16) had submitted representations under all four of the licensing objectives. Those representations were set out in Annex 4 of the report. The representations also made reference to social distancing breaches etc. The Sub-committee must focus on points in respect of licensable activities only.

h.  Representations supporting Mr Borufi (IP17 and IP18) were set out in Annex 11.

i.  No other representations were received from the Responsible Authorities.

j.  Should the Sub-committee be minded not to remove live and recorded music from the licence, Mr Borufi had agreed to additional licence conditions as set out in Annex 5, and mirrored in the minor variation application received yesterday.

k.  There had been no response in respect of the proposals for Conditions 13 and 15 in the current licence, and clarification was requested to be provided during the presentation.

l.  If the Sub-committee was minded to remove live and recorded music from the licence, the Licensing Authority requested that proposed Condition 16 be applied to the licence.

 

2.    The statement on behalf of the Licensing Authority by Charlotte Palmer (Senior Licensing Enforcement Officer), read out by Ellie Green due to sound quality and connectivity issues:

 

a.  The review was sought on the grounds that the premises have breached a noise abatement notice in respect of statutory nuisance arising from the production of noisy music. Breaching the notice was an offence. The grounds of the review  ...  view the full minutes text for item 578.
