The licensing officer reported that there was no update to the report.  Conditions had been agreed with the police, licensing authority and the noise service.


The resident stated that his main concern was the noise from the extractor fan as this made it impossible to sleep. Another neighbour experienced similar problems. He had double glazing installed but could still hear the noise. He had no concerns regarding the sale of alcohol but was concerned about the noise from the extractor fan, particularly in the hot summer months and would not want the noise disturbance until midnight.


In response to questions, it was noted that conditions had been proposed to limit deliveries to vehicles without internal combustion engines where possible to help prevent noise from deliveries. The resident stated that the general noise from the premises at the front of the building was no worse than the other local licensed premises. The chimney at the rear was very noisy and he would be pleased if the noise disturbance did not continue until midnight. The owners had not spoken to the resident about the fan noise, however, they had spoken to him when they had first opened and had told him to call them if there were any issues. The premises was previously a pizza restaurant but he stated that the extractor equipment had been installed by Holy Cow.


The applicant’s agent stated that the restaurant had been operating for about ten years. His client had moved the chimney to avoid noise disturbance and had installed a silencer. Conditions had been agreed with the noise service to prevent noise nuisance emanating from the premises. They amended the application to reduce the hours applied for to 11pm.  Alcohol would only be sold with a  take away meal and Challenge 25 conditions had also been proposed. All the franchises had now applied for alcohol licences and he expected his client to work with his neighbours to ensure that they were comfortable with the noise escape. It was noted that the extractor was managed on a full service contract and filters were changed when necessary.


The Sub-Committee welcomed the removal of the application for late night refreshment and the importance of engaging with neighbours in the future was highlighted.


In summary, the resident was happy with the amendment to the hours and had no issues with the sale of alcohol. He would want the fan to be turned off at 11pm.

The applicant’s agent welcomed that the amendment had resolved the issues and considered that the application could be granted.



1)     That the application for a new premises licence, in respect of Holy Cow, 98 Chapel Market N1 be granted to allow:-

a)     The sale of alcohol, off supplies only, Mondays to Sundays from 11 am until 11pm.
