This report relates to a provisional statement application for changes being made to the above premises by the applicant Mr Tacim Koca.

Preliminary Matter

At the outset, the Committee was informed that the Applicant had modified the application to revise the supply of alcohol time from 24 hours to 06:00 until 01:00. Further, regarding the conditions proposed by the Licensing Authority, the Applicant did not agree to those but did agree to those presented by Public Health, with the exception of the high strength alcohol sale restriction (no super-strength beer, lagers or ciders of 6.5% ABV [alcohol by volume]).

Licensing Officer

Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, introduced this application for a provisional statement for Seven Brothers, 72 – 76 High Road, Tottenham, London, N15 6JU. The applicant, Mr Tacim Koca, held a 24 hour premises licence for 72 High Road. However, the applicant sought for a provisional statement to increase the floor space of the shop to cover 72 – 76 High Road and for a new supply of alcohol hours from 06:00 to 01:00, Monday to Sunday to cover 72 – 76 High Road.

The Committee was informed that a provisional statement would mean that a future application for a premise license by the premise would be granted in principle, unless there was a fundamental change from the provisional statement in question to that future application. Residents would therefore not be able to challenge that future application on the same grounds that they opposed the provisional statement.

Representations had been received from Licensing Authority and the Public Health Responsible Authority regarding the make up of the area and current issues around street drinking and the impact that this caused with potential noise from customers arriving and leaving the premises and customers utilising the outside area.

Representations had also been received from residents with concerns regarding the application, including noise from customers using the street outside to consume alcohol and noise from patrons loitering around the premises.

Following questions from the Committee to the Licensing Officer, it was noted:

  • The issue of no VAT number on the application form was not relevant.
  • Whilst the Applicant had not ticked ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to the provision of indoor sporting events, the Licensing Officer confirmed they would not be providing indoor sporting events.
  • The issue of background music level could be disregarded by the Committee as this was not a licensable activity.
  • The terms of the existing premises license would remain unchanged. If the Applicant had the provisional statement granted, they could apply for a new premises license in the future which mirrored the provisional statement, once building work had been completed. In that scenario, the new premises license (as agreed in the provisional statement) would supersede the previous premises license which would no longer be in effect.


Public Health

The Committee next heard from Public Health. The following was highlighted:

  • Haringey had the worst statistical data for alcohol related diseases in London which caused misery for families and local communities.
  • Haringey had the highest volume of alcohol being sold which had a direct impact on local communities where a large volume of alcohol was  ...  view the full minutes text for item 15.
