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


    On Thursday, 28th of October 2021 the licensing authority received from the premises user Mr Henry Bondi, a temporary event notice in respect of proposed temporary licensable activities due to take place from 19:00 am on 20.11.2021 and finishing at 01:00 am on the 21.11.21 within Tiferes Shlomo School, Danescroft Avenue, London, NW4 2NA.


            (a)               DECISION NOT TO ISSUE A COUNTER NOTICE

    The Licensing Authority, having received a notice of objection from the relevant chief officer of police under section 104(2)(a) of the Act and in accordance with section 105(2)(a) of the Act, having held a hearing on 11th November 2021 at 10:30am to consider the objection notice hereby;

    (a)                      does not consider it necessary to give a counter notice for the promotion of the crime prevention objective. The event may go ahead.


    The following reasons are given:

    The Applicant advised the Sub-Committee that the event taking place on 20th November 2021 was a school fundraiser which will include a religious meal and musicians and performers.  He acknowledged the concerns of local residents and advised that robust management plans had been put in place to mitigate their noise concerns.  He told the Sub-Committee that the Premises has been refurbished with sufficient sound proofing installed. He advised that the event will be marshalled by school committee members and security staff will manage the doors to ensure that they remain closed and will only open for entering and exiting the Premises in order to limit noise.  He further advised that the noise levels will be monitored both internally and externally to ensure that the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
