Minutes:

The licensing officer reported there was nothing further to add to the report

 

The interested party reported that he did not agree with the sale of alcohol from 6am in the morning on a predominantly residential street.  The premises previously had a licence that ran from 8am and he did not think it was necessary to change these hours to 6am.  The resident also asked that there be no on sales and stated that he had no concerns with the current management.

 

The licensing officer clarified that the police had objected to the licence and asked that the hours be amended to 9am.  The applicant’s representative tabled an email from the police which stated that they agreed to an 8am start time in line with the previous hours.

 

The applicant’s representative stated that there would be the same number of fridges as previously, they were asking for an off licence and this was not an on licence application.  Concerns had been raised from the local residents regarding fire problems if the kitchen was relocated to the rear but the fire brigade had no problems with this application and any works would be covered by building control regulations. 

 

In response to questions it was noted that with the increase in space the fruit and vegetables could be moved to inside the premises.  The layout of the premises would be changing but the applicant would be keeping the same amount of space used for alcohol.  He did not sell much alcohol in the morning.  He had been at the premises for 14/15 years and had no problems.  He operated Challenge 25.  He knew his customers.  The change of hours to 6am was a misunderstanding. When the hours were questioned by the police he immediately had stated that this was not a problem.  The applicant stated that there were no problems with street drinking in the area.

 

In summary, the resident stated that his objection was to the early hour sought.  He had no objection to the shop.  He would not want an on sales licence, only an off licence.  He would want the amount of alcohol space to remain the same.

The applicant’s representative stated that there was no intention for an on licence and the premises was moving away from an eatery to increase the shop size. Condition 7, regarding the alcohol strength had been agreed.

 

RESOLVED

a) That the application for a new premises licence in respect of Arsenal Food and Wine, 92-94 Gillespie Road, N5 1LN be granted:-
