Fire Clubs licence to be reviewed

A review of Fires licence has been called by the Met. We will be attending licencing to represent residents views, which are primarily around anti-social behavior as people leave the club and noise disturbance. Please contact us on if you want to let us know whatr you think.

Details below:

A Review application for a Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of the below-mentioned premises was received by the licensing authority on 18th August 2011

Applicants Name: Metropolitan Police Service
Premises Address: Fire - Arches 39-44 Parry Street London SW8 1RT

Grounds for review:

Police have expressed serious concerns for the safety of persons attending this venue, following a number of covert operations during which officers observed the supply and usage of illegal drugs, and test purchasing officers were supplied with illegal substances themselves. Police have stated that they believe the premises’ management to be “either unwilling or unable to tackle the drugs problems which are endemic to this venue”

Prior to determining this application, the licensing authority may accept written representations from Responsible Authorities and Interested Parties on the likely effect of the grant of this application in relation to the licensing objectives, which are:

· Preventing crime and disorder;

· Public safety;

· Preventing public nuisance; and

· Protecting children from harm.

Representations will be disregarded if they are deemed to be vexatious, frivolous, or irrelevant, or if they are received later than the 15th September 2011

If a valid representation (or more than one) is received and is not withdrawn, this application will be referred to a hearing of the Licensing Sub-Committee for determination. If no representations are received, the application will ordinarily be determined by the relevant Licensing Officer.

Applications for new Premises licences, and variations and reviews of existing ones, will be placed on the Councils website for inspection; the address at which these may be accessed at
