Khumo Matthews, Legal Advisor, noted that a document had been submitted on the day of the hearing on behalf of the premises licence holder. It was explained that, generally, late items would not be considered but that this was at the discretion of the Licensing Sub-Committee, subject to any objections. Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, noted that the late documentation was a Noise Plan and that the premises licence holder may wish to deliver this information verbally.


Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, introduced the report which presented an application for a review of a premises licence for Kiss The Sky, 18-20 Park Road, London, N8. It was explained that the review had been submitted by a group of residents who stated that they had been impacted by disturbances from the premises on 21 and 23 May 2021. It was noted that the review form was included as Appendix 1 to the report. It was stated that the licence was held by Ray Assets Ltd, which was owned by Mr Kashka Ray, and that the Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) was Ramgolam Yogendra.


The Licensing Officer explained that the current premises licence permitted regulated entertainment for recorded music and the provision of facilities for dancing and permitted alcohol sales on the premises only; the hours of licensable activity were set out in full in the report.


It was noted that the application for review cited all four licensing objectives in the grounds for review. It was added that there had been further representations from the Licensing Authority, the Noise Team, and other persons and that one representation had been received in support of the business; these were set out in full in the agenda pack.


It was highlighted that some of the email correspondence submitted in this case included footage in relation to potential noise nuisance and anti-social behaviour. It was noted that this footage was not public information due to data protection implications as it included a number of individuals. It was noted that the footage had been shared privately with the members of the Special Licensing Sub-Committee and with the premises licence holder.


The Licensing Officer explained some background information in relation to this case. It was noted that Kashka Ray had emailed the Licensing Team on 17 May 2021 and was provided with information on how to transfer the licence. It was stated that Kashka Ray submitted an incomplete application on 21 May 2021 and this was rejected by the Licensing Team who informed him that he was unable to carry out any licensable activities at the premises until the process was undertaken correctly. It was explained that Noise Team officers were called to the premises on 21-23 May 2021 in response to reports of loud music and noise and a warning letter was issued on 23 May 2021. It was noted that Kashka Ray submitted a complete application on 24 May 2021 and that application was subject to a mandatory 14 day consultation period with the Police.
