Conservatory Archives, 3 Middleton Mews, N7 9LT - New premises licence pdf icon PDF 5 MB

Minutes:

The licensing officer reported that the applicant had agreed to remove the application for recorded music.

 

The resident raised concerns about the noise from music and drinking alcohol in a very residential area.

 

The applicant confirmed that he had removed the application for recorded music. He had consulted with the police and licensing authority about the application. It was proposed to sell alcohol between noon and 7pm only as they were aware that it was a residential area. The café area was 500 square foot and had capacity for 20 people.  The sale of alcohol was ancillary to the operation of a garden centre with a focus on tropical plants. As part of the consultation with the police and the noise team, conditions had been accepted and would be placed on the licence. He had detailed this in a letter to residents.

 

In response to questions, the resident questioned whether alcohol in a garden centre was necessary. The applicant had sent a second letter to residents and there had been an invitation to a meeting. The resident present at the meeting had been unable to attend this meeting. The applicant stated he was happy to be involved with the community in the future and would provide his personal number to residents.

 

In summary, the resident stated that the removal of recorded music and the engagement was welcomed but wondered if the sale of alcohol in a residential area was essential to the success of the café. She raised concerns around controls if the premises was rented out.  However, she stated that it was positive that the hours were not late and this was not a pub setting.

The applicant considered that this was a great addition to the garden centre. The café was in a separate building and would be good for that type of premises particularly during the summer. The area may be rented out for photo shoots or for parties however, if hours exceeded 7pm or there was a capacity of over 20, a separate temporary event notice would need to be applied for.

 

RESOLVED

1)      That the application for a new premises licence, in respect of Conservatory Archives, 3 Middleton Mews, N7 9LT, be granted to allow:-

 

a)    The supply of alcohol, for consumption on and off the premises from 12 noon until 7pm Monday to Sunday.

b)    The premises to be open to the public from 10 am until 7pm Monday to Sunday.

 

2)      That conditions detailed on pages 37 to 38 of the agenda be applied to the licence.
