Question Title

* 1. Cumulative Impact Area- Clerkenwell and Bunhill

We are considering extending the existing cumulative impact area in the Farringdon area of Clerkenwell to cover the whole of Clerkenwell and Bunhill wards. This proposal is intended to help us manage negative impacts associated with any further increase in the high concentration of licensed premises in the area.
The policy would mean that all contested new and variation applications for late night venues would be refused except if special circumstances apply. The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 2 and paragraphs 11-22 of the draft statement.

Question Title

* 2. Cumulative Impact Area- Kings Cross

We are considering introducing a cumulative impact area to cover the Kings Cross area. This area would cover the southern parts of Caledonian and Barnsbury Wards and part of Caledonian Road. This area has already undergone radical change in recent years and this trend looks set to continue. The policy would help us manage potential negative impacts associated with any further increase in licensed premises in the area.
The policy would mean that all contested new and variation applications for late night venues would be refused except if special circumstances apply. The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 2 and paragraphs 23-28 of the draft statement.

Question Title

* 3. Cumulative Impact Area- Angel and Upper St

The policy would mean that all contested new and variation applications for late night venues would be refused except if special circumstances apply. The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 2 and paragraphs 29-32 of the draft statement.

Question Title

* 4. Cumulative Impact Area- Holloway Road and Finsbury Park

We are considering introducing a cumulative impact area to cover the Holloway Road and Finsbury Park area. Any further expansion of the night time economy in this area needs to be carefully managed to minimise any negative impacts in terms of alcohol related crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour.
The policy would mean that all contested new and variation applications for late night venues would be refused except if special circumstances apply. The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 2 and paragraphs 33-35 of the draft statement.

Question Title

* 5. Cumulative Impact Area- Archway

We are considering introducing a cumulative impact area, to cover the sale of alcohol in Junction area of Archway. The high density of premises already supplying alcohol in the area is having a negative impact in terms of crime, disorder and public nuisance and this policy would help us to manage any further expansion of this business sector.

The policy would mean that all contested new and variation applications for late night venues would be refused except if special circumstances apply. The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 3 and paragraphs 36-40 of the draft statement.

Question Title

* 6. Licensing Hours

The Licensing Authority believes that the late night economy in Islington has reached saturation point and any further expansion needs to be carefully managed. Residents regularly tell us that they want to support businesses applying for licences to sell alcohol, provide entertainment and supply hot food but they do not want these businesses operating in the early hours of the morning because of the adverse impacts on themselves, their families and their communities.
We want to encourage applications from businesses that are able to respond to these concerns by suggesting the following framework terminal hours for new and variation applications:

Public houses and bars: 11pm on Sunday to Thursday, Midnight on Friday and Saturday
Restaurants and cafes: 11pm on Sunday to Thursday, Midnight on Friday and Saturday
Off licences: 11pm on Sunday to Saturday
Hot food takeaways Midnight on Sunday to Thursdays, 1am on Friday and Saturday
Nightclubs 1am on Sunday to Thursday, 2am on Friday and Saturday
Alcohol to sales to residents in hotels 24 hours sale of alcohol


The details of the proposed policy are set out in licensing policy 7 and paragraphs 55-61 of the draft statement.
