    Special circumstances justifying urgent consideration


    A meeting of the Licensing Sub-Committee has been convened as a result of an objection raised by the Police regarding a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).  Section 105(2)(a) (of the Licensing Act 2003 [part 5]) requires a minimum of two days’ notice to be given.  The event is due to take place on 10 March 2019.


    The Chair is of the opinion that although the meeting has not been convened with at least five clear days’ notice, it should proceed as a matter of urgency to consider the objections to the TEN because of the special circumstances of the need to comply with the statutory requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.


    At 7.05 pm, the Chair explained that although the applicant, Mr Nicardo Peynado was not present, the application would be heard in his absence.  He further explained that as the TEN needed to be considered as a matter of urgency (because the event was scheduled to take place on 10 March 2019), the application should proceed.  Therefore, he felt that the applicant’s rights had not been affected to proceed without his presence. 


    Presentation by the Licensing Officer


    The Sub-Committee was informed that a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) had been submitted and the Sub-Committee was being asked to consider objections received by Lambeth Police Licensing and Public Protection and Regulatory Services. The Sub-Committee’s attention was drawn to Chapters 7, 9 and 15 of the Statutory Guidance, and to Sections 5, 6, 8, 14 and Appendices 6, 7 and 9 of the Statement of Licensing Policy, as the ones particularly relevant to this application. The options available to the Sub-Committee were set out in paragraphs 5.1 to 5.10 of the report, pages 3 to 4 of the agenda.


    The Licensing Officer confirmed:

    • This was an application for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN) for 101-103 Brixton Hill, submitted to the Licensing Authority by Mr Nicardo Peynado.
    • Two objections to the TEN had been received from the Police Licensing Team and Lambeth Public Protection and Regulatory Services.  The objections were based on the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder and the prevention of public nuisance.  Copies of the objections can be found on pages 17-19 of the agenda.
    • The TEN was seeking regulated entertainment for a 38th birthday party from 23.59 on Sunday 10 March until 04.30 Monday 11 March 2019.
    • The premises did not have a valid licence in place.
    • A copy of the application could be found on pages 9-16 of the agenda.


    A map and photographs of the premises were circulated to members.
