24/7 off licences on Brixton Hill forced to reduce hours

The Licensing Sub-Committee last night imposed strict new conditions on two 24-hour off-licences on Brixton Hill. Council officials and the Police applied for the shops to be reviewed following allegations of serious breaches of their conditions, including the employment of illegal workers in both cases and the lack of proper security and management in one case in an area of high public nuisance.

Both cases were settled following negotiations between the shopowners, the Police and the Council. While no side got entirely what they were after, consensus was reached on a set of new conditions to ensure proper employment methods, measures to deter street drinkers and a reduction of hours so neither shop is open overnight. The allegations were particularly serious and the Police and Council had initially asked for the licences to be revoked altogether, so this compromise allows the businesses to continue trading on the condition that the issues are resolved.

Premier Food & Wine at 112 Brixton Hill will now be open until 11pm Sunday to Thursday and until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Costcutter at 98 Brixton Hill will open until midnight Sunday to Thursday and until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays, and they will also ensure that they install a door and shutter so the premises can be secured overnight.

Cllr Martin Tiedemann was able to address the committee and a number of local residents made representations in writing that the committee took into account before signing off the conditions.

cctvPolice are appealing for help tracing a woman who may have information after a rape on Brixton Hill. Detectives have released a CCTV image after a woman in her 20s was attacked off Brixton Hill in the early hours of Sunday 2nd August.

The woman was allegedly approached by a man she did not know, before being dragged into a secluded area and raped.

Police said the woman they released an image of is seen going into Morley’s Chicken shop on Brixton Hill at around 2.39am, before the attack took place.

A spokesman added: “The woman, who is white and believed to be aged in her mid-20s, was wearing a light coloured dress. As she came out of the shop, she was approached by a man with whom she walks up Brixton Hill towards Streatham.

“The woman may be able to help detectives investigating an allegation of rape committed nearby later that morning.”

A 21-year-old man was arrested and charged with rape on Tuesday, August 11, and is due in court in November, police said.
