Application to vary the Premises Licence


Ristorante Carola

151 Lee Road, London SE3 9DJ


In reaching its decision the Sub Committee considered the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy, The Licensing Act 2003, the Regulations made there under and the Guidance issued by the Secretary of State under section 182 of that Act.  In discharging its functions, the Sub Committee did so with a view to promoting the licensing objectives of the Prevention of Crime and Disorder and the Prevention of Public nuisance.


The Licensing Sub-Committee considered an application for the variation of the  existing premises licence.. The application sought an extension to permitted licensable activities for Live Music & Recorded Music (Indoors Only) until 24:00 hours on Sundays to Wednesday and until 02:30 hours on Thursday to Saturday, the same extended hours for Late Night Refreshment (Indoors only) and the supply of alcohol for consumption on the premises only


Having considered the two written representations from residents against the application, the conditions volunteered and agreed with the police, the Sub-Committee granted the variation to the Premises Licence as follows:


Live Music & Recorded Music (Indoors Only):

12:00 hours until 24:00 hours on Sunday to Wednesday

12:00 hours until 02:30 hours the following morning on Thursday to Saturday


Late Night Refreshment (Indoors Only):

23:00 hours until 24:00 hours on Sunday to Wednesday

23:00 hours until 02:30 hours the following morning on Thursday to Saturday


Hours for the Supply of alcohol (On the premises):

11:00 hours until 24:00 hours on Sunday to Wednesday

11:00 until 02:30 hours on Thursday to Saturday



The Licensing Sub-Committee imposed additional conditions upon the existing premises licence as follows:


(i) A staff member from the premises who is conversant with the operation of the CCTV system shall be on the premises at all times when the premises are open to the public. This staff member must be able to show/download a Police or authorised council officer recent data or footage with the absolute minimum of delay when requested.


(ii) A written dispersal policy shall be in place and implemented at the premises to move customers from the premises and the immediate vicinity in such a way as to cause minimum disturbance or nuisance to neighbours. This written policy shall be available to be produced to any Police Officer, Police Community Support Officer or authorised Local Authority Officer on request.


The Sub-Committee’s decision was based on issues raised concerning the prevention of crime and disorder and prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.


In reaching their decision the Sub-Committee considered and gave due regard to: -


The police had agreed to the variation of the premises licence subject to agreed conditions being imposed.


Environmental Health did not make a representation against the application.


Due weight was given to matters of concern raised in the two written representations received from residents relating to potential disturbance and antisocial behaviour if the hours of licensable activities at the premises were to be extended.
