Licensing Act 2003 - Application for a Premises License at 29 Central Parade, New Addington, CR0 0JB PDF 20 MB
The Sub-Committee is asked to determine whether to grant the application for a premises license at 29 Central Parade, New Addington, CR0 0JB.
The Chair outlined the procedures for the licensing hearing in line with the Licensing Act 2003 and introduced the applicant and the applicant’s agent. It was noted that the objector Cllr Pearson was unable to attend the meeting.
The Head of Environmental Health, Trading Standards and Licensing described the types of licensable activity that could be applied for and introduced the nature of the Licence Application as described in Appendix A of the reports pack. The application was for a Premises Licence for sale by retail of alcohol for consumption off the premises, Monday to Sunday, 8am to 11pm.
Officers noted the representations received from Ward Councillor, Councillor Tony Pearson, remained relevant despite him not being in attendance. The Sub-Committee was advised the application was in a cumulative impact area and the ordnance survey map provided at Appendix A4 was noted.
The Sub-Committee queried whether the premises was currently trading with a temporary licence. Officers advised the previous owner had held a license, but this was separate from the current license application by the new owner. There was no temporary licence and the premises was not open at present. The applicant explained that the previous owner had been evicted and had not signed the licence transfer documents, requiring a new licence application to be made.
The Committee queried the issue of the application increasing the number of licensed premises in the cumulative impact area, a key aspect of the representation made by Cllr Pearson. Officers advised as the premises had previously had a licence, if granted, this application would not add to the number of licensed premises on the parade.
The Applicant’s Agent advised the Sub-Committee the Applicant also owned shops at numbers 52 and 44 on the parade and had been in the area for two years. The Applicant had consulted with Police and agreed the police conditions. The Applicant shared the posters and incident books which would support the implementation of the condition and advised the shop would create two new jobs in the area.
In response to questions from the Sub-Committee the Applicant advised it was their intention to change the name from ‘Booze Bank’. The shop would be a convenience store selling food, drink and household items with the nature of the shop being convenience, not solely focused on the sale of alcohol.
In response to questions from the Sub-Committee, Officers advised the police did not typically raise positive representations, so the absence of a police report was not unusual. As the Applicant had agreed the conditions there were no further concerns from the Police.
The Chair advised the outcome of the hearing would be communicated within the statutory time period and thanked those present for their participation.

Licensing Act 2003 - Application for a Premises License at Addington Park, Croydon, CR0 5AR PDF 1 MB
The Sub-Committee is asked to determine whether to grant the application for a premises license at Addington Park, Croydon, CR0 5AR.
The Chair outlined the procedures for the licensing hearing in line with the Licensing Act 2003 and introduced the applicant, the applicant’s agent and the objector to the meeting.
The Head of Environmental Health, Trading Standards and Licensing described the types of licensable activity that could be applied for and introduced the nature of the License Application as described in Appendix A of the reports pack. The applicant sought the following licensable activities on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 July 2023; Provision of Regulated Entertainment, Recorded Music 13:00 – 21:30 and Sale by Retail of Alcohol (for consumption ‘on’ premises) 13:00 – 21:30.
Officers noted a copy of the Event Safety Management Plan included in the application for information, this document had been to the Safety Advisory Group. Following discussions with the Police Licensing Officer and the Applicant’s acceptance of the Police conditions there had been no representations received from the Police. These conditions were detailed at Appendix A3. The Applicant had also set out how they intended to meet the four licensing objectives; these would be included on the license if granted. Representations had been received for the application and were included in the reports pack.
In response to questions from the Sub-Committee officers advised the application was made by the same applicant the previous year.
Charles Marriott, Vice Chair of the Addington Village Residents Association and local resident, had raised representations and was given the opportunity to speak. They advised the Sub-Committee that:
· They had submitted a report on last year’s event, that it had been well run and extremely successful from a local resident’s perspective. There had been very good liaison between residents and the Made in the 90s staff;
· The application anticipated increased attendance of 3100 people, therefore appropriate security measures for both onsite and offsite should reflect that increase;
· Council liaison with Made in the 90s on traffic management issues such as coning of roads should be in place and made a condition of the license; and,
· Security at the end of the roads to manage resident access and parking restrictions should be in place.
The Chair commented that it was positive to hear the previous year’s conditions had been met and for the Sub-Committee to receive positive feedback on a license application.
The Sub-Committee queried the inclusion of 2021 parking photographs submitted as part of other parties’ objections. Charles Marriott advised the prevention of traffic issues had been significantly improved in 2022, and that meetings between residents and the police had taken place. Traffic management had been in place and the council had provided ticketing officers and a tow vehicle.
The Applicant was given the opportunity to speak and advised that:
· Their main objective was to ensure the four licensing objectives would be met;
· There had been lots of communication with residents and the police;
· The Police conditions based on feedback from the 2022 event had been accepted;
· The event’s capacity had increased to 3100 including staff. Additional measures such as fencing would be ... view the full minutes text for item 36/22
