    For the less-than-clued-up, like me, please note the following reply from Simon Gallacher (Licensing Officer, Islington Council) to my representation on the suggested link:

    “For a representation to be relevant it must refer to one or more of the licence objectives:
    * The prevention of crime and disorder
    * The prevention of nuisance
    * Public safety
    * The protection of children from harm
    Please note that the availability of other licensed premises and appearance of the premises are not relevant grounds for objection as they do not relate to the licensing objections.”

    This is quite a difficult situation. Central Station serves a widely flung clientele and is in a location which is relatively distanced from immediate neighbours. Over many years the bar/club has been very well run indeed and extremely sensitive to their locality. I have no doubt at all that Martin will continue this. It is one of the very few bars I can think of where a 5am licence does not result in hordes of drunk people pouring out and creating nuisance. However, there is shortly going to be new (mainly affordable) housing built on Wharfedale Road immediately adjacent to the bar and I am nervous about whether a happy coexistence is going to be possible. Local Councillors have very recently agreed a planning permission for the new housing which contains some quite firm requirements about sound insulation. Even so, immediate proximity to the bar may prove to be a problem and I hope we can find ways of resolving this.
