Licence application for the Fish Shack on Morrish Road – deadline for comments 17th May

The Fish Shack and Deli Shack at 56 Morrish Road has applied for a premises licence in order to sell alcohol 12 noon to 1am each day. The bar and restaurant is listed as closing at 1.30am every day.

A previous venue at this location, Serenity Bar, had its licence revoked due to disturbance to residents and there have been ongoing reports of anti-social behaviour in the road.

The deadline for representations has been extended to 17 May due to a failure to properly display the licensing notice. Written representations can be made by emailing licensing@lambeth.gov.uk quoting the venue’s address and addressing at least one of the four licensing objectives.

At the elections for Lambeth Council on 3 May, Adrian Garden and Martin Tiedemann were re-elected as councillors for Brixton Hill, and were joined by new councillor Maria Kay. They were elected as Labour & Co-operative councillors.

Lambeth will continue to be a Labour-run authority as the party won 57 of the 63 seats in the borough, a net loss of one, with the Greens now the official opposition.  In Clapham Common ward, neighbouring Brixton Hill, Labour gained two seats off the Conservatives, allowing for better co-operation on issues across Kings Avenue such as road safety and schools.

Maria, Adrian and Martin said, “It’s an honour to be elected for our home ward of Brixton Hill and we want to thank all those who voted in the election. We spoke with hundreds of residents during the election and we listened to the issues you raised. We now want your help to set our priorities for the next four years. Get in touch and let us know what matters to you.”
