Licensed chippy proposed for 123-5 Kingsland High Street
An application has been made by Harvest Fish and Chips for ‘a premises licence for late night refreshment from 23:00 to 00:00 Mon to Sun and to allow supply of alcohol for on sales from 11:00 to 00:00 Mon to Sun.’ at 123-125 Kingsland High Street.
If this were to be granted, it would mean that, apart from a bank and a betting shop, every single building in this block (which extends from John Campbell Road to Crossway on the west side of Kingsland High Street) would be devoted to selling food and drink, with the Somine (on the corner of Crossway) the ONLY one of these without an alcohol license.
If the applicants want to open a fish and chip shop, we must ask why it needs an alcohol license, when it is surrounded by other businesses that sell alcohol until midnight or even later.
It seems likely that adding yet another source to what is already an oversupply, will only fuel the cumulative impact, adding more anti-social behaviour, pavement congestion, noise and other nuisances to an area already at breaking point.
If you wish to object to this application, write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the address of the premises in the subject line.
Your objection is most likely to be taken seriously if it directly addresses the objectives of Hackney’s Licensing Policy. The four main objectives of the policy are:
• Prevention of crime and disorder
• Public safety
• Prevention of public nuisance
• Protection of children from harm.
The deadline for objections is October 27th, 2016.
