1)              This was an application to vary a premises licence for the Premises known as the Man of Aran, 424-426 Alexandra Avenue, Harrow, Middlesex H82 90W (the “Premises”) in order to amend the licensable hours for the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises, as well as the provision of late-night refreshment and the opening hours of the Premises.  The Applicant also sought to update and amend the conditions on the licence and the Premises Plan.


2)              The existing licensable hours for the provision of sale of alcohol and the provision of live music and recorded music are 10:30 – 23:00 hours Monday to Saturday and 10:30 to 22:30 on Sunday.  The opening hours the Premises are 10:30 to 20 minutes after the end of licensing hours.  There is also a seasonal variation to allow extended hours on New Year’s Eve.


3)              The Applicant sought to amend these hours so that the sale of alcohol for consumption on the Premises and the hours the Premises were open to the public were extended to 10:00 to 01:00 Monday to Sunday and the provision of late-night refreshment would be 2300 to 01:00 Monday to Sunday.  The Applicant also sought to remove the condition in Annex 2 of the premises licence and delete condition 3 of Annex 3 of the licence.  Both conditions related to the presence of young children on the Premises without adult supervision.  The full wording of these conditions, the existing licence and the application to vary the same are in the agenda papers.


4)              Following consultation with the Police the Applicant agreed amended hours of licensable activity and amended conditions, such that the opening hours for the Premises and the hours for the supply of alcohol for consumption on the Premises would be amended to 10:00 to 00:00 Sunday to Thursday and from 10:00 to 01:00 on Friday and Saturday.  The amended hours for the provision of late-night refreshment would be 2300 to 00:00 Sunday to Thursday, and 23:00 to 01:00 hours on Friday and Saturday.  The agreed conditions largely mirror and amalgamate the conditions proposed by the Applicant in the application.  The Applicant's original proposed conditions and the conditions agreed with the Police are set out in Appendix 5 and Appendix 6 to the agenda.


5)              In response to the application there was a petition by eight people who were residents living above the Premises  ...  view the full minutes text for item 107.
