There's an old pub on the Caledonian Road opposite Pentonville Prison on the corner of Brewery Road that used to be called the Eagle (427 Caledonian Road London N7 9BG). It went bust and is now being reopened. They have applied for extended hours, quite late on a Friday and Saturday until 2am and until 0100 on Monday morning. If you wish to comment mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by 14 July.
A local resident who llives oposite the pub has contacted the site to say:
The Eagle pub on the Cally, has applied for a license for extended opening hours and music licence – til 1am – Sundays, Midnight – Tues to Thurs, and 2am Fridays and Saturdays. The letter sent by the council didn’t reach me (I live in Carrick House, which is the block directly opposite the pub).
Don’t think that this is appropriate, this is a quiet part of the Cally, largely residential with some retail/offices. If the pub is granted these hours, residents sleep is likely to be disturbed. The pub has no facility for outside smokers, other than the street.
The deadline to make representations is 14 July, and they can be made directly to the Islington licensing officer, Dominic Ping (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com)….
During the time that it was open previously it was very noisy with people spilling out onto the pavement to smoke and being noisy-drunk hanging about the street, I was about to complain about it shortly before it closed. It was called the Eagle then.
The hours seem excessive for a pub that's fairly remote from areas that are 'destinations' for people seeking late night entertainment so it represents a change in character to the location.
There are plenty of families and older people in the immediate neighbourhood who I think unlikely to want this kind of amenity (pity it couldn't have sought normal hours as a 'local' – I suspect it may be aiming at the student halls of residence near the Caledonian Tube station).
The Islington Council website makes me want to weep sometimes – i can't link direct to the application for you. The applicant is the anonymous special purpose company ITH2 Limited registered at the premisis address. The licensing system is supposed to be responsive to residents concerns so let them know.
