Birds Nest licence extension

The news that the Birds Nest pub has applied for a late-hours music extension was raised at last night's residents' and tenants' association meeting.  Noise and other forms of disturbance have in the past affected Crossfields residents, particularly Frankham House residents.  The fact that each weekend seems to bring a new layer of broken glass to the Ha'penny Hatch may also be due to carousers returning to Greenwich from the Birds Nest but, to be honest, I've never witnessed this ever-popular form of late-night sport being played.

Anyhow, here are the details of the licence application, followed by how residents may lodge objections.

 The Birds Nest has applied for an extension as follows:

Thursday from 23:00 to midnight
Friday & Saturday from 01:00 to 02:00
And to have live music Thursday & Friday 20:00-midnight, Saturday 14;00-midnight and Sunday 14:00-22:30.

Representations have to be made before 6 August to Laurence House or to and must be related to one or more of these licensing considerations:

Prevention of Public Nuisance
Protection of children from harm
Public Safety
Prevention of Crime and Disorder

Any representations made become a matter for public record, need to have a name and an address, and will be available to the applicant, ie the Birds Nest.  In the words of Kim Giddings, Principle Licensing Officer:

''I would also advise that should you make a representation, a copy of your objection will be sent to the applicant.  You will also be advised that should the application be determined by the licensing committee of the council at a public meeting your letter would form part of agenda papers for the meeting. You will have the opportunity to address the committee on this matter. These documents are available to the press and the public.''
