Owners of The Park Hotel have requested extended licensing hours that if accepted will see the venue open until 1am Thursday-Saturdays and until midnight on Sundays.
Since KouKou Bar’s demise there hasn’t been a central venue to visit after normal closing times for restaurants and pubs so with this application the business is hoping to attract business by filling this niche and better serve its resident customers.
From the council notice: “Any interested party in the vicinity of the premises must make representation to this application in writing to the Licensing Authority, London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, Civic Centre, 44 York Street, Twickenham, TW1 3BZ or email email@example.com.”
The deadline for representations is 27th August 2010. Any comments made must be linked to one or more of the licensing objectives:
- The prevention of crime and disorder
- Public safety
- Prevention of public nuisance
- Protection of children from harm
The Pheasantry Café within Bushy Park has also applied for altered licensing hours which will see it open able to open until 6pm and serve until 5:30pm daily (March-October) and half an hour earlier November – February.
