To consider an application for a new premises licence.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, introduced the report which presented an application for a new premises licence for Elsie’s Café, 10 Priory Road, London, N8. It was explained that the application requested a licence for the sale of alcohol on and off the premises from 1200 to 2300 hours on Monday-Sunday, with public access from 0600 to 2330 hours Monday-Sunday. It was noted that the premises were situated on a row of terraces, with residential accommodation above and to the rear. It was added that the premises had a garden and a forecourt area; the forecourt would not be part of the licensable area of the premises but it was part of the demise and would be used by patrons.

 

The Licensing Officer explained that a number of conditions had been offered by the applicant as follows:

·         There shall be no sales of alcohol for consumption off the premises after 2200 hours.

·         Alcohol consumed outside the premises building shall only be consumed by patrons seated at tables.

·         The premises licence holder shall ensure that any patrons drinking and/ or smoking outside the premises do so in an orderly manner and are supervised by staff to ensure that there is no public nuisance or obstruction of the public highway.

 

It was explained that the application carried the conditions offered by the applicant, the majority of which were set out on page 29 of the agenda pack. It was noted that one of the offered conditions stated that the supply of alcohol for consumption off the premises would be restricted to alcohol consumed by people seated in the forecourt area. It was explained that this would prevent home deliveries or takeaway sales of alcohol. It was added that the applicant had agreed that any smoking outside after 10pm would be limited to five people at any one time and that smokers would be encouraged to go to Priory Road.

 

It was stated that representations had been received from the Licensing Authority and four other persons, including Councillor Dana Carlin, and these were set out in full in the report. It was explained that the representation from the Licensing Authority had now been withdrawn as the applicant had accepted the conditions proposed by the Licensing Authority; these had been circulated to all parties and were as follows:

 

·         The area that forms the forecourt area to the licensed premises is detailed on Plan PL01.

No furniture or other obstruction is to be placed on the land crosshatched orange and blue, measuring 2m by 4.86m, detailed on the plan titled Plan PL01.

Further, the Premises Licence holder is to maintain the above land clear of customers save for those customers immediately accessing or leaving the Premises.

·         The licence holder shall ensure that the outside areas of the premises are monitored so as to ensure there is no crime, disorder, public nuisance or obstruction of the public highway.

·         The licensee shall implement a policy for dealing with customers who engage in crime or disorder within or  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
