Two recent applications to extend the licensing hours of local premises have caused anger amongst Stockwell and Oval residents. The Kelly's pub on Clapham Road proposed to extend its license to 5am - and following a campaign by local residents and the Oval councillors, the proposal has been withdrawn.
Cafe a Toca on Wandsworth Road proposes to similarly extend its license from to 4am on Friday and Saturday nights, and 1am the rest of the week and concerns have been expressed by local residents about the potential for noise nuisance and their compliance with planning regulations.
Cllr Alex Bigham, along with a number of residents in the area, including the residents' committee of This Space have objected to the proposals. This will now come before licensing committee this week - Wednesday 8 September at 7pm in the Town Hall (Room 125). Anyone can attend the meeting, but only those who have made representations in the allotted time frame can speak.
