The Designation of parts of the highway as licence streets for the purposes of Street Trading pdf icon PDF 5 MB

Minutes:

The Licensing Enforcement Officer presented the report on the designation of parts of the highway for the purposes of street trading. The report concerned five applications for the following:

 

1)    An area of 3.2m x 1.9m outside The Adega, 77 The Broadway Wimbledon SW19 1QE.

2)    An area of 13.9m x 0.8m outside Morden Food Centre 17-19 Morden Court Parade London Road Morden SM4 5HJ.

3)    An area of 5.3m x 2m outside Turkish BBQ House 44 Aberconway Road SM4.

4)    An area of 11.1m x 1m outside Instagrab Pretzel 11-13 London Road Morden SM4 5HT.

5)    An area of 2.59m x 1.325m outside Greggs, 11 Fair Green Parade, London Road, Mitcham, CR4 3NA

The Licensing Enforcement Officer advised that all five applicants were currently operating on temporary licences and there had been no issues. Morden Food Centre had an existing licence and therefore it was suggested that the previous designation could be rescinded if the new application was approved. The Committee agreed that this should be the case. In relation to Greggs, there had been one complaint relating to an A-board which had been dealt with but was a matter for the highways department and not a street trading offence.

 

In response to questions, the Licensing Enforcement Officer confirmed that all five applications had sufficient space for pedestrians.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That the Committee approved the applications for:

 

1)    An area of 3.2m x 1.9m outside The Adega, 77 The Broadway Wimbledon SW19 1QE.

3)  An area of 5.3m x 2m outside Turkish BBQ House 44 Aberconway Road SM4.

4)  An area of 11.1m x 1m outside Instagrab Pretzel 11-13 London Road Morden SM4 5HT.

5)  An area of 2.59m x 1.325m outside Greggs, 11 Fair Green Parade, London Road, Mitcham, CR4 3NA

That the Committee approved the application for 2)An area of 13.9m x 0.8m outside Morden Food Centre 17-19 Morden Court Parade London Road Morden SM4 5HJ and agreed to rescind the previous existing designation.

 

The Chair reminded Committee members that prior to the next Committee in February 2020, members should be submitting any ideas or evidence to be considered as part of the updated Licensing Policy as well as any responses in relating to improving the night-time economy in Merton.
