Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The London Borough of Haringey undertakes reviews of licences when complaints have been received. There is currently such a review taking place for BG MAX. There have recently been some violent incidents which are said tobe associated with the bar. This is the public's opportunity to submit comments and to identify occasions on which the four requirements of the licensing laws have been breached.

Review of Premises Licence
Failure to uphold the Licensing Objectives of The Prevention of Crime and Disorder and Public Safety Sale of Alcohol, Regulated Entertainment and Provision of Late Night Refreshment
Hornsey - Closing Date 10/30/2012
I have written to the licensing department. Other local people should also do so.
I believe that the owner of the licensed premises BG Max in Crouch End has failed to uphold the Licensing Objectives of The Prevention of Crime and Disorder and Public Safety. He is publicly quoted as saying "
“If people want to fight they will, and even if you take them out they will continue and then it’s the police’s turn.
“I’ve got an appointment with the council next week; it’s not our fault to be honest - it happens in every club, in every borough.”" http://www.tottenhamjournal.co.uk/news/crime-court/crouch_end_night...
Whereas what he should be saying is
"If people want to fight our door security staff will do their best to calm them down and make sure that when they leave the fighting does not continue. With our team of security staff the police should never be needed.
“I’ve got an appointment with the council next week; We will admit to a few mistakes and promise it will never happen again."
His cavalier disregard for public safety is clearly insupportable and the licence should be withdrawn forthwith.
Are we frightened of this barman, so that we have to conceal our identities. Who is running the campaign? Why not put the information here?
I have not had any circular letters, from the LibDems or anywhere else.
But, as the result of my email to the Licensing review I have had a call from Jed Mackin of Trust Inns, the business development manager for BG Max. He has been meeting with Haringey's licensing team and would like to meet local residents. He can be contacted via Janet Meve on 01257 238813. He wants to resolve the licensing problems.
