Applicant                       Pakash Patel – The Ship Sports Bar Limited; Robert Jordan (Representative)

 

Making Representation  Mr Ian Vinten and Ms Marie Morrissey

(against the application)  (represented by Councillor David Gardner)

 

The Chair welcomed all parties and ensured that introductions were made, all papers had been received and that all parties were aware of their right to be represented.

 

The Sub-Committee considered an application made by Mr Pakash Patel, the Ship Sports Bar Limited for the grant of a premises licence for the Ship Public House, 205 Plumstead Common Road, London SE18 2UJ.

 

The Licensing Officer gave an illustrated introduction of the report.

He advised the Sub-Committee that the premises licence had lapsed because the previous holding company had been dissolved.

 

The applicant’s representative addressed the Sub-Committee. He explained that the premises had soundproofing and 10ml toughened glass in the windows. He advised that the pub was noisier when a DJ was in residence.  He continued that none of the responsible authorities had made representation against the application. He said that the complaints related to the previous licence holders. There was a nominated person on site from 8pm and the present owner ran the premises well. He added that recent events to 2am covered by Temporary Event Notices had not drawn any complaints.  He said that the outside door opened outwards towards the common. The applicant would monitor the noise created in the outdoor smoking area in front of the pub. He also asked that the Sub-Committee noted that there were two further pubs in the area, The Mill and The Star, had later closing hours. With regard to patrons using The Flame Kebab which has a closing time of 1am, they were not permitted to take food back in to The Ship, and it was The Flame’s responsibility to monitor noise levels outside their premises. The applicant offered to provide a contact number that residents could call if they were disturbed by noise from The Ship.

 

In response to a question from the Sub-Committee, the applicant’s representative explained that the outside door did not have a lobby or an inner door.

 

Councillor Gardner addressed the Sub-Committee on behalf of a resident against the application. He spoke to their representation as given at Appendix E.

 

The applicant’s representative responded that the door was self-closing and was quite thick. He said that the outside space would be difficult to monitor after 22:00 but the applicant would provide a telephone number for residents to call and would ensure notices displayed.

 

All parties with the exception of the Legal Advisor and Corporate Governance Officer, withdrew to allow the Sub-Committee to deliberate at 6.58pm. All parties returned at 7.15pm.

 

The Chair informed those present of the decision of the Sub-Committee, and stated that the full details would be given in the formal decision notice.

Making Representation  Charles Pickup (speaker), Lizzie Pickup,

(against the application)   Mats Ellefsen, Nicholas Bloy, Riaz Nathoo, Kallirroi Tsangaris

 

The Chair welcomed all parties and ensured that introductions were made, all papers had been received, including the submission from the applicant, and that all parties were aware of their right to be represented.

 

The Sub-Committee considered an application made by The Liberty (City) Pub Company Limited for the grant of a premises licence for The Oystercatcher, Unit K1, Kings Lodge, 7 Victoria Parade, London SE10 9FR.

 

The Licensing Officer gave an illustrated introduction of the report.

 

The applicant’s representative addressed the Sub-Committee. He advised that further concessions had been made as follows;

·               Reduced drinking up time of twenty minutes;

·               Waste would be left for collection thirty minutes beforehand and would be kept in sealed containers, pick up of rubbish would be seven days per week if necessary;

·               The outside area would have a dedicated manager, the outside area would be cleared from 22:30 for closure at 23:00,

·               All outdoor furniture would be stored so as not usable when the

pub was closed.

·               Delivery and pick up would not take place between 22:00 and 8:00.

·               Recorded music was withdrawn.

·               Provision of late night refreshment was withdrawn.

 

He continued it would be a food led operation with a more independent vibe. The company were unable to undertake due diligence as it was a new premises and they applied on the same licence terms as the Sail Loft. When made aware of the representations from residents they had amended their application. A number of representations were withdrawn at this point. The statutory authorities made no representations. He concluded that the premise’s lease also contained restrictive clauses.

 

In response to questions from the Sub-Committee, the representative said that a telephone number for residents and on the website would enable them to call regarding noise nuisance. He continued that they did not anticipate large numbers of smokers but they would be mindful of this.

 

Charles Pickup addressed the Sub-Committee on behalf of those making representation against the application. He said that residents were not objecting in principle to a licensed premises but their collective experience had been of issues with the Sail Loft. He said they welcomed the changes already made to the proposed application. The main concerns were with regard to noise nuisance, including daily set-up, patrons and staff outside the premises, closing time activities, music, deliveries and rubbish collection. He asked that set-up times for weekends and Bank Holidays be no earlier than 9.30am. He added that the outside seating was of concern, as if permanent, it would encourage patrons to stay after hours. He emphasised that this was a highly residential area, and many residents rise and retire early. He requested that the outside area close earlier at 22.00. He also asked that staff be responsible for the effective dispersal of patrons after closing.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
