THE BIRD IN HAND PUBLIC HOUSE, 100 TOTTENHALL ROAD, LONDON, N13 6DG pdf icon PDF 141 KB

Application for a Variation of a Premises Licence (Report No:  154)

Additional documents:

Minutes:

RECEIVED the application made by B Lads Limited for the premises situated at The Bird in Hand, 100 Tottenhall Road, London, N13 6DG for a Variation of Premises Licence (LN/201500059).

 

NOTED

 

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

 

a.    The application was for a variation of the premises licence of The Bird in Hand pub.

b.    This was a large old pub with a large beer garden. There were a couple of shops next to the premises, but this was a predominantly residential area.

c.    The application sought to remove Condition 3 from the licence and add an additional condition to allow use of the beer garden until the end of the permitted hours for the sale of alcohol. Apologies were given that para 2.2 of the officer’s report set out incorrect times.

d.    The suggested replacement Condition 3a sought by the applicant was set out in Annex 7 of the report. The second part of the condition referred to a member of staff being present and confused suggested Condition 21. It was therefore recommended that Condition 21 should apply as it stood and that the second sentence of Condition 3a be removed.

e.    All conditions offered by the applicant or sought by the Licensing Authority would only apply if the extended hours were granted. The remaining licensable activities would remain the same.

f.     All responsible authorities were consulted, but the only objection came from the Licensing Authority: this representation was set out from page 61 of the agenda pack.

g.    There had been an officer visit and a recommendation that the plan attached to the licence be modified to show the garden area and all exits from it. This new plan had now been submitted and agreed.

h.    The Licensing Authority did not agree to the variation application and would be represented at the hearing by Charlotte Palmer, Senior Licensing Enforcement Officer.

i.      Two other representations were received: from Councillor Achilleas Georgiou (Bowes Ward Councillor) and from one more local resident who lived in Wolves Lane. These were referred to as IP1 and IP2 and the representations were set out on page 71 and page 73 of the agenda pack. The representations were based on the licensing objectives of prevention of public nuisance, prevention of crime and disorder, and public safety. Interested parties were not present at the hearing.

j.      The applicant had provided additional supporting information as set out in Annex 6 of the report. The applicant had copied the Principal Licensing Officer into all email exchanges with London Fire Brigade and the risk assessment work, and all issues were addressed promptly. The applicant Lale Hassan, Premises Licence Holder, was present on behalf of B Lads Limited, along with Mehmet Ali Arslan, Designated Premises Supervisor.

 

2.    The statement of Lale Hassan, the applicant, including:

 

a.    The application was in respect of the beer garden. At the moment it was allowed to be used up to 23:00. After that, smokers were allowed to go out no  ...  view the full minutes text for item 345.
