Bluebird Brothers application for a takeaway alcohol license and live music until 2am seven days a week

Postby Tigger » Mon Jul 20, 2020 10:05 am

It would appear that the tiny cafe Bluebird Brothers have applied for a takeaway alcohol license, and music license until 2am every night, seven days a week!!

Based on the fact that they are tiny, have no loos, have virtually no space outside, how on earth do they intend to make this work, especially given the levels street drinking/urinating/vomiting on the last two weekends?  At least the various bars around them have established working practices such as security, seating, cleaning up etc whereas Bluebird Brothers have none.  And music until 2am every night - this is madness!!

If you would like to see the application look here:
https://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/business- ... bid=310405

And if you would like to comment (ASAP as it is nearly at the end of the consultation period) email:
licensing@merton.gov.uk


Please see the following from the council website:
 Any representation must also be about the likely effect of the granting of the application on one or more of the licensing objectives. These are:
  • The prevention of crime and disorder (for example drug-related problems, disorder, drunkenness and anti-social behaviour)
  • Public safety (the physical safety of people using the venue)
  • The prevention of public nuisance (for example noise from music, litter and light pollution)
  • The protection of children from harm (including moral, psychological and physical harm)
We cannot take into account other considerations, such as competition and need.

Hi,

The hours listed are not correct and it was simply an error when completing the application. The revised hours are as follows:

Monday to Thursday 1000 to 2130 hours
Friday to Sunday 1000 to 2300 hours

I also confirm that external drinking areas will close at 2230 hours with the area to be cleared of customers by 2300 hours.

Even with the above hours listed we only intend to stay open late on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

We have no intention of playing live music during any evenings and were simply hoping to play live music on weekends during reasonable hours. (This is not a necessity to us).

We will offer seating on the Northcote road and outside our shop on Saturdays and Sundays and are trying to come to an agreement with our neighbours to share the space on Abyssinia Close on Fridays.

I also confirm that we do have a toilet for our customers to use and we will hire trained staff for any late night evenings.

Kind regards,

Eleftherios Eleftheriou

Bluebird Brothers
