Minutes:

3.1      The Chair welcomed all parties to the meeting and introductions were made. She then invited Ms Spall to introduce the application.

 

3.2      Ms Kidd-Morton said that in this report and the J6 restaurant report, there is an element of the report that is missing; the equalities implications. She reminded members of their statutory duties under the Equalities Act 2010.

3.3      Ms Spall said that members were being asked to consider an application for a new club premises certificate sought by Hatcham Liberal Club for Hatcham Liberal Club 367 Queens Road SE14 5HD. Objections had been received from 6 residents who live in close proximity to the premises. The objection is sought on the grounds of perceived public nuisance, crime and disorder, and public safety from the patrons. Ms Spall then introduced the applicant and objectors who would be addressing the Committee.

 

            Applicant

 

3.4      Mr Boscic said that Hatcham Liberal Club has been in existence for over 70 years. Ten years ago it went into dilapidation. He  contacted a development company who helped to develop the premises back to a club and at the same time his costs would allow for internal flats and an external club attached to the back of the premises.

 

3.5      Mr Boscic said that this would be a members’ only club for local people of the older generation, to play cards, dominos and watch TV. There used to be bands playing at the club but he would not have any bands because the premises is too small. However, they may have a band once every 6 months or not at all, he did not know. He said that he had agreed to all the conditions suggested by licensing officers. CCTV for example is already installed.

 

3.6      Mr Boscic said that the club has not opened. However, residents had complained about noise. In hindsight he should not have had a party; it was his daughter’s 21st birthday party on 21 January 2018, and he was on the premises. He also allowed a funeral wake to be held at the premises. It finished at 11-11.30pm and everything had been cleared and tidied. He said that all the complaints were directly as a result of these events but the premises has not opened as a business yet.

 

3.7      The Chair asked the objectors present whether they all live in the building. All but one resident confirmed that they do. She asked whether they were advised that there was a club on the plans when they moved into their homes. They said that they had not been told.

 

3.8      Councillor Millbank declared that she is a ward member for Telegraph Hill which has the ward in which the premises is situated.  Councillor Millbank said that she understood that when the front of the building was developed, it was within the planning application that included plans for a club. She confirmed that she had not been in contact with any of the residents on this issue.
