Licensing update

Last week, there was a Licensing Committee hearing as Bar A Bar had applied to extend its hours.

Cllr Rita Krishna and local residents from Beatty Road spoke at the hearing, expressing concerns about the proposal given the club's history and the impact it has on residents living nearby. There was a good result - the committee refused the extension of Bar A Bar's hours giving the reason that public nuisance and prevention of crime and disorder - two key licensing objectives - would be undermined.

At the same hearing - 92 Stoke Newington Road was given a license until midnight on Sun-Thurs and 2am Fri-Sat, with lots of conditions to make sure that noise is not audible from the venue.
