Re-admission of the Press and Public: Announcement of the decision of the Sub-Committee


    This is an application for a new premises licence made under section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003 in relation to 1 Charcot Road, London NW9 5HG (the “Premises”) by Mr Hayirola Berkpinar (the “Applicant”).


    The application seeks to allow:


    1. The sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises only for the following hours:

    Sunday to Thursday - 11:00hrs until 23:30hrs

    Friday to Saturday    - 11:00hrs – 01:30hrs

    1. Sale and supply of late night refreshment on:

    Sunday to Thursday 23:00hrs- 23:30hrs;

    Friday to Saturday 23:00hrs to 01:30hrs;

    1. The premises to remain open to members of the public from:

    Sunday to Thursday 11:00hrs to 00:00hrs;

    Friday to Saturday 11:00hrs to 02:00hrs


    The sub-committee heard from the applicant, Mr Hayirola Berkpinar. No objectors were in attendance.


    The licensing sub-committee noted that no objection was received from any of the responsible authorities including the Metropolitan Police who had reached an agreement with the applicant to include several conditions to the proposed licence. As a result of this, the Metropolitan Police raised no objection to the application. The agreed conditions are set out in the officer’s report at paragraph 3 and are not repeated therein. The sub-committee has considered these conditions and is happy to include all of them in the licence.


    The sub-committee had before them, two written representations from local residents. The representations primarily focused on the licensing objective of prevention of public nuisance. It is also noted that an objector had raised issues relating to the licensing objective of protection of children from harm but has failed to elaborate further. The residents have made very similar representations which are:


    (1)  The premises will be a source of disturbances to local residents;

    (2)  It may result in an increase in noise and nuisance level in the area;

    (3)  There is already enough noise in the area due to the presence of student accommodation;

    (4)  Serving alcohol till the early hours of the morning everyday may not be a good idea for public safety reasons;

    (5)  It may encourage drunk and disorderly behaviour in the area and this may lead to an increase in crime rate.


    The sub-committee heard from the Licensing Officer who presented the licensing report. The sub-committee also heard from the applicant.


    The licensing sub-committee has considered all oral and written representations made as well as relevant legislation, the statutory guidance and Barnet’s licensing policy. Whilst the sub-committee appreciates the issues raised by the objectors, taking all things into account, the sub-committee has decided to grant this application albeit with some changes as specified by the Metropolitan Police. The sub-committee believes that with these conditions, the licensing objectives will be promoted.


    The sub-committee considered whether the Premises would cause a nuisance in the area either by the conduct of its customers or by noise. No evidence is provided as to why this should happen, nor any reasoning provided. 


    Alcohol is to be served only to customers purchasing food and therefore most unlikely to encourage passing trade looking for  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.
