LICENSING

Boxpark Shoreditch will learn this week whether it has permission to sell alcohol until midnight at weekends.

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.
