Lambeth Council team dealing with noise and enforcement has made an application to review the licence of Serenity Wine Bar & Restaurant, where there have been several complaints regarding loud music and gathering of patrons outside late at night. Despite meetings organised and warning letters sent, the managers have failed to engage in any way with the Council and residents have continued to complain.
The enforcement team has therefore made an application to amend the licence of the bar to mean that only background music may be played; the hours will be restricted to 11pm every night; late night refreshment will not be allowed; and should any event licences be granted it will be with strict safeguards.
The review will go to Licensing Sub-Committee in the new year. Residents have until 12 January to make their views known. Comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and should address the ‘licensing objectives’ – preventing crime & disorder; public safety; prevention of public nuisance; and protecting children from harm. Full details of the review will appear here soon.
