Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Same here Adrian. May i add that the whole point of Crouch End is that all are welcome, BUT we are a peaceful and respectful bunch who cannot stand manners and attitudes of another age.. I call it progress. ;-)
I was actually proposing a committee (working group) to cover the entire Haringey Borough.
People seem to be lost when confronted with the antisocial behaviour of some premised licenses and I want them to come to us.
WOuld that be something you would consider?
Eventually, yes. But for now I'd be happier cutting my teeth on a more manageable rusk. By tackling BG Max we might be preventing the spread of such places around here. Uncontrolled it becomes like Upper Street in Islington or parts of Brighton. I suspect that even by including Muswell Hill we would be undertaking a cure rather than a prevention. I have no idea what Tottenham's vibrant and dynamic night life is like.
Ok, I am based in Muswell Hill. While I am happy to help my fellow Crouchenders, I also think we have plenty of problem premises here.
I spoke to a Licensing solicitor about my situation (which I can't disclose yet) but would love to compare notes etc.
Another problem venue is the Pavillion in Park Road, which is Crouch End/Muswell Hill.
I don't know if any of the neighbours to Pavillion are on this forum
I have just received this email from the licensing committee with regards to BG MAX. BG MAX are complaining about the controls implemented as a result of the recent licence review. The committee needs support from local residents to keep these controls in place. Please read below. The email they require a response to is:
As some of you may already be aware, the Premises License Holders have lodged an appeal against the decision of the Licensing Sub Committee.
They have cited that the Committee acted entirely unreasonably in decision it handed out by restricting the times of the license, conditioning the requirement for wand searching of all patrons, requiring a female door staff and stopping all licensable activity 30 mins before actually closing.
This email is really to update you of the position and to ask if any residents will be willing to participate in the appeal hearing. Cllr Whyte attended the initial Committee hearing to put residents views across, but the hearing at the magistrates is done afresh and so the opportunity arises for residents to take part in this new hearing also.
I would appreciate it, if you could email me back with your views, letting me know if this is something you would consider doing. At this moment I am unable to give an idea as to a hearing date, but it would help the Council to know if we were aware of possible witnesses that we may wish to call upon.
