Application to vary the premises licence

Additional documents:


In reaching its decision the Sub Committee considered the Council’s statement of Licensing Policy, the Licensing Act 2003, the Regulations made there under and the Guidance issued by the Secretary of State under S.182 of that Act. In discharging its functions the Sub Committee did so with a view to promoting the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.


Having considered all the evidence put before it the Sub-Committee decided to grant the variation to the Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of the


Sainsbury's, 1a Philipot Path, London, SE9 5DL


as follows:


Alcohol delivery service in response to online/internet orders shall be


Monday– Sunday

23:00 – 07:00



The supply of alcohol for the festive period shall be


Christmas: from and including the 14 days before Christmas, Christmas day and up to and including 7 days after Christmas

06:00 – 24:00

Easter: from and including the Monday prior to Good Friday up to and including Sunday following Easter Monday

06:00 – 24:00








The variation is also granted subject to the additional conditions volunteered by the applicant set out as follows:


-      The store may run an alcohol delivery service in response to online/internet orders between the hours of 2300 to 0700.

-      When the store is open for non-licensable sales between the hours of 23.00 to 7.00 all alcohol shall be covered by a screen of the store’s choosing. This does not apply to the extended hours over the seasonal period.


The Applicant set out the application and volunteered a reduction in the extension to the seasonal hours from 1.00 to 24.00. The Applicant explained that the extension of hours to prepare online orders would have no noticeable effect on the number or timing of deliveries, orders would only go out during normal trading hours and therefore there would not be additional vehicles for collections etc during the extended hours. The Applicant explained that this was necessary due to the definition of the point of “sale” for online orders.


Councillor Clare spoke on behalf of Colin Rutt. He raised concerns over the manner of the application, which volunteered no conditions when submitted and the effect of increased online orders/deliveries in terms of noise and traffic in the area.


Peter Glazebrook spoke on behalf of the tenants of the residents of the Alms houses. He raised concerns about the way that the application had been submitted and queried whether the Applicant would use the extended hours only to fulfil online sales. He explained that there had been problems with crime and disorder in the car park next to the shop and he felt that the Sainsbury’s staff were not adequately trained or prepared to deal with customers trying to buy alcohol later at night. He raised concerns about increased vans overnight to take the extra orders. He suggested that the Sub-Committee should consider additional conditions to further limit the number of delivery  ...  view the full decision text for item 6.
