Late Night Licensing and Tackling PJ’s Wine BarWritten by Wandsworth Conservatives Friday, 11 March 2011 12:41
Your ward councillors, Sarah McDermott, Ian Hart and Sheldon Wilkie are working very closely with council officers and the police in order to take action against PJ’s wine bar.
PJ's Wine Bar is located opposite Du Cane Court on Balham High Road and has caused residents noise disturbance with the late night and early morning activities.These disturbances are in breach of PJ’s planning permission. With action underway, we hope that affected residents can look forward to some peace and quiet at night in the near future.
Every week, any new licensing application in Nightingale ward is scrutinised by your councillors to ensure that they fall within recommended guidelines and will be acceptable to local residents.
Councillor Ian Hart comments “Part of the problem we have is the dreadful licensing laws which we inherited from the last Labour Government. They were a bit of a dog’s dinner and made it complicated for us to protect the rights of local residents.These regulations also made it very confusing for the local business trying to make a living. What further complicated things was that the law prevented local Councillors getting fully involved in their local licensing issues. Thankfully commonsense has now prevailed.”
Councillor Sarah McDermott adds “We are determined to ensure that Nightingale is a thriving community for both residents and small business. We will fight hard to protect both. However, we will not tolerate irresponsible people who deny people’s right to a decent night’s sleep.”
If you think that a pub or bar is in breach of its licence please contact your three local councillors.
