Another Club in Gillet Square – From the Rio Cross Residents Association

Another Club in Gillet Square

An application has been submitted by Mr Byron for ‘a premises licence for plays and films from 12:00 to 22:45 Mon to Thur, 12:00 to 23:00 Fri and Sat and from 12:00 to 22:00 Sun and performance of dance and supply of alcohol from 10:00 to 22:45 Mon to Thur, 10:00 to 23:45 Fri and Sat and from 10:00 to 22:45 Sun’.

If granted, this license would effectively transform what was supposed to be only a restaurant into yet another club, in an area that is already a centre of night-time anti-social behaviour. The premises occupies part of a building that backs onto residential properties in John Campbell Road, as well as neighbouring other homes in Gillet Square and Boleyn Road.

If you wish to object to this application, write to with the address of the premises in the subject line. The deadline is May 6th, 2015.

Your objection is most likely to be taken seriously if it directly addresses the objectives of Hackney’s Licensing Policy. The four main objectives of the policy are:

• Prevention of crime and disorder
• Public safety
• Prevention of public nuisance
• Protection of children from harm.
