Minutes:

Ms Daliah Barrett, Licensing Officer, introduced the application for the review of the Premises Licence for Jolly Anglers, 33 Station Road, Wood Green, London N22. It was noted 580 Green Lanes Ltd. held the Premises Licence. The applicant of the review was the Metropolitan Police who had claimed the operation of the premises had failed to uphold the licensing conditions and the licensing objectives, namely the prevention of crime and disorder, the prevention of public nuisance, and public safety.

 

In addition to the Metropolitan Police submissions, representations had been received from 22 local residents and the Licensing Authority. It was noted that only the documentary and oral representations made to the Committee should be considered in their deliberations.

 

Mark Greaves, the Police representative, outlined the application for review he had made to the Committee. He took the Committee through Appendix 1 – Review application and supporting documentation – which included emails from local residents about their concerns, and a summary of Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) reports in relation to Jolly Anglers call outs. It was clarified that these were not actual crime reports.

 

Following questions, Mr Greaves noted the CAD summaries provided were the extent of the police call outs to the Jolly Rogers between 25th November 2017 and 19th November 2018. He accepted there were issues with the police search system in that it was difficult to source complaints to specific places but rather general locations. However, he had checked the system as thoroughly as he was able to. He said he had looked for calls where police were not able to attend and was not able to find any. He accepted there could have been more noise related complaints but these might have gone through to the Council, which had a late night enforcement team to address any noise complaints received throughout the evening and early hours. It was noted that the enforcement team had made no representations to the Committee regarding the matter.  

 

Local residents, Ms Paola Desiderio, Ms Kate Ash and Mr Andy Belsham, who had made written representations next addressed the Committee. Ms Desiderio queried the effectiveness of the police search system used by the Police representative and claimed that she had made 15 calls to the police in August alone.

 

The local residents then highlighted several concerns they had with the operations of the Jolly Anglers. They included:

 

  • Noise related issues, which they said could be heard in the early hours. They claimed the noise prevented them from being able to sleep.
  • Clientele throwing up and urinating on the streets
  • Anti-social related behaviour such as fighting taking place outside the venue.
  • The issues were not limited to weekends.
  • Smashed glass left on the streets surrounding the premises.
  • The ineffectiveness of the door staff in being able to handle the clientele and moving them on once they had left the venue.
  • Local residents claimed they had witnessed the door staff instigating fights and not acting to prevent fights occurring.
  • There were instances where  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.
