At the outset of the item, Chris Knight (Licensing Agent) stated that he had not received a copy of the representation from Public Health and from two of the residents.

It was confirmed that the representations had been received within the required time limits and so were valid for consideration.


Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, introduced the report which presented an application for a new premises licence for GETIR UK LTD, Unit 5, 2 Overbury Road, Tottenham, London, N15. It was explained that the application requested a licence for the sale of alcohol off the premises through online sales only from 0000 to 0000 hours on Monday-Sunday; the site would not be open to the public but deliveries could be made at any time and there would be 24 hour access for staff and delivery couriers.


The Licensing Officer explained that the applicant had accepted the conditions proposed by the Licensing Authority, Police, and Trading Standards and that these were set out in full in the report. It was stated that other representations had been received from Public Health and four other persons, including Councillor Barbara Blake, and these were set out in full in the report. It was also noted that the relevant laws and guidance were listed in the report, from section 3 onwards.
