Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information

A licensing application on the door surround at what was KFC suggests very strongly that a new restaurant will be opening there called Chicken and Egg. This seesm to be part of the Soho group of restaurants referred to here, though Crouch End does not get a specific mention

Yes thanks Adrian, I did see this in fact.

I am just surprised (as a general rule) but the lack of background info with regard to who these people are. I was expecting something more substantial like you get with planning applications..

How is the "public" supposed to make an informed opinion?



The licensing pages also contain information about the licensing register. There is a note which refers to an 'operating schedule' which sets out just how the applicant plans to run the place. Presumably this is available for inspection. Perhaps you could ask licensing@haringey.gov.uk for sight of it.

I'm still waiting for info re the fish&chips place- when will it open? (perhaps one should ask if at all?)

will it be licensed?    restaurant and/or takeaway?    after such a long wait, it better be good! 

My observation on licensing applications is that the council tends to grant most applications, because it looks at a fairly narrow list of criteria. These are described on the council's website:

  • The prevention of crime and disorder
  • The prevention of public nuisance
  • Public safety at licensed premises
  • The protection of children from harm

So unless there is an objection from the Police, or unless the applicant/premises has previous form, a licence will usually be granted, although the council will sometimes restrict the hours applied for and insist on noise prevention measures.

The licence application is not a substitute for the normal planning permission which may be needed to open a restaurant.
