Chipotle Mexican Grill, 334 Upper Street, N1 0PB - Premises licence variation pdf icon PDF 3 MB


The licensing officer reported that a representation from a local resident had been circulated.  Papers had also been circulated from the applicant. These would be interleaved with the agenda papers. He reported that there was also to be an additional condition included that, the sale of alcohol off the premises would be limited to sales of alcohol which accompanied take away food and to any area approved for a tables and chairs licence by Islington Council.


The applicant’s representative outlined the amendments made to the application following consultation with residents as follows:-

Off sales would be permitted only a) as part of a telephone call or internet sales or b) to areas with tables and chairs outside.

Off sales would be from 10am – 11pm on Monday to Saturday and from 12 noon to 11pm on Sunday.

Delivery collections would be through the front door on Upper Street only.


One local resident raised concerns regarding the tables and chairs at the rear of the premises and asked that they be brought in at 6pm and that the door at the rear remain shut after 8pm. They asked that Deliveroo drivers be asked to go along Upper Street and not Camden Passage. They stated that the premises sold only beer and margaritas currently and were concerned that if the premises was taken over this may change. A second resident raised concerns regarding the rear area and the cumulative impact of granting this variation as it would add to the existing impact and should not be ignored.  The closing of the rear door should be agreed for 8pm and it was stated that the use of motorbikes along Camden Passage was illegal.


In response to questions it was stated that a licence for the front table and chairs had been renewed for 3 tables and 12 chairs although only 2 tables and 8 chairs were used.  This licence had existed for five years.  The small area at the back with tables and chairs was owned by the applicant and therefore a licence was not required. A resident stated that the steps were very steep at the rear and could be dangerous for deliveries.


The applicant’s representative stated that condition 3 could be amended to exclude a bottle of wine per takeaway meal.  He stated that the use of the back door was not part of an off sales application however would be pleased to offer closure of the door at 9pm and removal of tables and chairs to alleviate resident’s concerns.  In response to questions he stated that a contact number could be provided to residents following the meeting.


In summary, the local resident stated that chairs at the rear were offered to be removed at 9pm but asked the Sub-Committee to note that that this was three hours longer than the Elk had been granted.
