LICENSING

Neighbours and a secondary school have lodged objections to a canalside venue's bid to hold theatre shows and film screenings and serve alcohol on its roof.

A popular Dalston bakery has been unsuccessful in its bid to serve alcohol and food late into the night, after councillors were left unconvinced by its owner that it would not add to the "cumulative impact" of licensed premises in the area.

Police have urged councillors not to allow a Shoreditch shop to sell fried chicken, because the owner has "some way to go" before being able to prove he can be a "responsible operator".

A bid to turn "what was someone's house till a few months ago" into a club has been rejected after dozens of neighbours complained organisers had already been breaching licensing conditions and "plaguing" them with "breathtakingly loud music" until the early hours.

Nightlife campaigners have launched a crowdfunder to raise money for a legal challenge against Hackney Council's licensing policy, which includes "core" midnight weekend curfews for new venues.

A controversial licensing policy is set to be signed off introducing a midnight curfew for new pubs, clubs and bars - unless landlords can convince the council they won't be a nuisance.

The promoter behind Field Day has ruled out holding the three-day festival in Finsbury Park next year - despite having applied to Haringey Council for permission to do so.
