Yet another late-night license application – 169-171 Caledonian Road

Another premises on Caledonian Road feels they need to be opened until 4AM on Friday and Saturday nights.  Do you agree or not!

N1_0SL

Planning Application P102583 has been submitted by the owner of Caledonian Banqueting Rooms located at the basement and ground floor of 169-171 Caledonian Road, N1 0SL seeking to vary a Condition (see below) of a previously approved Planning Permission P042155 which would now allow opening until 4.00am the following morning on Fridays and Saturdays.

This new application can be viewed here.

Comments on this application should be made by 06-Jan-2011 and either addressed to the Case Officer Robert Armsby (tel: 020 7527 2151) via email at planning@islington.gov.uk or by clicking this link.

The Condition to be varied:

CONDITION: The use shall not operate except between the hours of 08.00 and 00.00 (midnight) on any weekday and Saturdays and shall not operate at all on Sundays or Bank Holidays. REASON: To ensure that the proposed development does not prejudice the enjoyment by neighbouring occupiers of their premises.

It seems this "Condition" was put there for a specific reason and unless it can be demonistrated that there will be some overwhelming benefit to local residents in lifting this restriction the request should be denied.  We leave it up to local residents to exercise their ability to comment as shown above!

UPDATE – Apparently there is much more going on here then a simple planning application.  Apparently this establishment is already in the sights of the enforcement department of the Council.  Please go here to find out the background, and then hopefully add your comments on the specific application above.

    There is rather more history to this application for a nightclub (not the “Caledonian Banqueting Rooms”) and is covered in more detail at http://wp.me/pNrvq-cY Local Councillors are opposing this applciaiton and pressing for immediate enforcement.

  2. Aron Cronin says:

    I have objected as follows:
    This is likely to exacerbate the existing problem in the Cally Road of underage youths gathering aggressively in groups outside licensed and take away premises to all hours.

  3. Paul Convery says:

    The Council’s planning enforcement team today served a Temporary Stop Notice on these premises effective today and running for 28 days. This requires them to cease operating between 00.00 (midnight) and 08.00 on any weekday and Saturdays and entirely on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Breach of this notice is an offence which could result in immediate prosecution. Can I urge anyone witnessing the premises open beyond the permitted hours, please make a detailed record and send to me paul.convery@islington.gov.uk because evidence may be needed for prosecution. Additionally, over the holiday period, the Council’s noise team have been briefed to make any visits necessary to gather evidence.
