A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
The application is available to view on the Enfield Council website here: but there is no obvious mechanism on that page to make a comment. Perhaps you could alert your local councillors and the local police too.
I don't have much cause to pass this locality but, after a recent trip to The Occasional Half pub, I can confirm the unpleasant ambience you describe generated by the boorish clientele of this cafe and attendant street drinkers shouting abuse from doorways. Can only suggest that people continue to lobby the Police and Enfield Council to address the anti-social behaviour. Glad you're OK, Richard
This sounds really bad. If you were intimidated, what would others feel like? Very glad it wasn't me taking the photo.
I have sent email to Enfield Cllrs asking them to 'block' the application.
The Application is shown on the Enfield web site dated 10th September
Under the Licensing Act 2003 the Notice is supposed to be conspicuously displayed for a continuous period of 28 consecutive days. If the notice disappears please notify mailto:email@example.com
If you are prevented from inspecting the notice please lodge "an information" with mailto:Licensing@enfield.gov.uk
A Statutory Notice is required to be published in the local press. Look for it in the Public Notices (These often appear in the smallest possible print)
It is written: I believe it is clear that they are not suitable people to operate a licensed bar. Please distinguish between a Application for a Premises Licence and the nominated Designated Premises Supervisor.
The Premises has planning permission TP/10/0585 only for use as a Coffee Lounge subject to Conditions and for no other purpose (see pdf files) Decision Notice 20th July 2010 refers
A previous application for an alcohol premises licence was considered on 3rd July 2013 which was REFUSED
The Minutes of the Premises Application in 2013 ( a good read) can be found at CLICK HERE and is attached as pdf.
Various acts of criminality and anti-social behaviour have often been alleged along the Green Lanes corridor south of the North Circular Road, but have they been "crimed" and appear on the MPS database or have allegations been "no crimed"
Attached files Disappeared!
The formal advertisement has now appeared in the Enfield Advertiser.
The names and addresses of OBJECTORS will be made known to the applicant. When a Licensing hearing is to be held , the hearing will normally be held in the Council Chamber in the Civic Centre; members of the public may attend but only OBJECTORS may take part in the legal hearing.
A New Premises Licence for the Pizza Cafe and Restaurant 111 Green Lanes N13 4SP was GRANTED on 14th October 2015 to Mr Hamdi Duzel
Details of the current Alcohol licence are available on line, CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS
The Premises has the stipulated opening hours of 10:00 (12:00 Sunday) until 22:00
Alcohol may ONLY be served until 21:30
i bet they do not comply with the following:
A digital CCTV system must be installed in the premises complying with the following criteria: (1). Cameras must be sited to observe the entrance and exit doors both inside and outside and floor areas. (2). Cameras on the entrances must capture full frame shots of the heads and shoulders of all people entering the premises i.e. capable of identification. (3). Cameras overlooking floor areas should be wide angled to give an overview of the premises. (4). Provide a linked record of the date, time, and place of any image. (5). Provide good quality images. (6). Operate under existing light levels within and outside the premises.
Thank you for drawing specific attention of Bowes and Bounds readers to this requirement. Where a premises has been operating on a Alcohol Licence converted from a Magistrate Justice ON Licence and the premises has not caused difficulties then the converted licence does not include this provision. However, at the request of MPS the provision that you quote (or similar requirement) has been included when many newer licences have been granted -- except that the wording has become more precise as a result of experience.
1. The original application to serve Alcohol until 23:30 was NOT granted
2. Since I can be find no evidence of a public hearing of the Licensing Sub Committee for the premises as part of the application for a Alcohol Licence I assume that the applicant (and their agents) had agreed the conditions and the identity of the Premises Supervisor
There is a LOT of criminal activity in this area. Lots of men of working ages just "hanging around" during the day, driving expensive cars (some with disabled parking badges).
All very dodgy.
It sounds like the Houses of Parliament have relocated to Green Lanes.
