The premises currently has a club premises certificate and is licensed for the supply of alcohol on Mondays to Sundays from 08.00 hours until 04.00 hours and for regulated entertainment such as live and recorded on Mondays to Sundays from 11.00 hours until 03.00 hours to club members and their guests.

*The applicant and environmental health agreed a start time of 08.00 hours, however, as the original application itself stated a start time of 11.00 hours, it is not possible for the applicant to amend his application by extending the hours for entertainment.

The amended timings, or at least the terminal hours are consistent with a planning permission issued by the Council in July 2015. However, the planning permission restricted the use of the extra two hours on Fridays and Saturdays to 4 events per year. The stated reason for all the restricted timings was to “ensure that the proposed development does not prejudice the enjoyment by neighbouring occupiers of their properties”.

The applicant also agreed a number of conditions with the environmental health officer which are not set out in this decision notice but form part of the application details and other papers considered by us and published on the Council’s website  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.

Decision:

The Sub-Committee concluded that the application by the Metropolitan Police to review a premises licence relating to Everest Spice The Honeypot, Honey Pot Lane, Stanmore HA7 1EF be granted but subject to the conditions set out in the decision letter below.

 

The application

The Sub-Committee has given careful consideration to an application by the police, under section 51 of the Licensing Act 2003, to review the premises licence relating to Everest Spice The Honeypot, Honeypot Lane, Stanmore HA7 1EF. MacNeil Limited is the premises licence holder and Mr Mitra Bandhu Bhattarai is the designated premises supervisor. The grounds for review are the prevention of crime and disorder and public nuisance, and public safety. The licensing authority, acting in its capacity as a responsible authority, made a relevant representation too.

The premises are licensed for the sale of alcohol and for the provision of regulated entertainment and late night refreshment as follows:

Days of week

Alcohol

Entertainment

(with the exception of Mondays)

Late night refreshment

The premises is also authorised to provide these licensable activities during non-standard timings.

The application details and other papers considered by us are published on the Council’s website and are not repeated in this decision notice. In summary, the Police raised concerns about two incidents of violence and disorder on the premises on Sunday 12 April 2015 and on Friday 26 June 2015. According to the police, both incidents involved fights which started inside the premises.

The police pointed out the premises is one of the larger pubs in Brent with a ground floor capacity of 295 and comprises of 3 bar areas with seating, a restaurant, a front beer garden, a rear beer garden, a shisha area (which has its own bar and a capacity of 90) and a car park for approximately 20 cars. As a result of these incidents, the police expressed their concern about the premises relying on a single door supervisor at the weekends even though it is a large premises, is very busy and there have been actual and serious incidents of violence. The police recommended that a minimum of 4 door supervisors should be deployed at the weekends. The police claimed that this was rejected by the management as they do not think a “family restaurant” needs so many door supervisors and because of the “financial cost”.

The police requested that the current conditions of licence be varied or additional conditions be imposed.

The licensing authority representation reported on the findings of a visit on 31 July 2015.
