Licensing application: Townhouse, Basement and Ground Floor, 88 Great Portland Street, London W1W 7NT

An application has been made to Westminster council to vary the premises licence at: Townhouse, Basement and Ground Floor, 88 Great Portland Street, London W1W 7NT.

Proposed Changes:

The Westminster rubbish collection times for our street are now 8pm-9pm. The proposed variation is therefore to change Condition 24 of our Licence to 21.00-08.30 to allow compliance with the rubbish collection regulations.

Remove condition 42 (No licensable activities shall take place at the premises until the premises have been assessed as satisfactory by the Environmental Health Consultation Team at which time this condition shall be removed from the Licence by the Licensing Authority.)

We propose that Condition 20 be changed to “There shall be no pre-arranged private events authorised under this licence lasting more than 4 hours and accommodating more than 30 customers at any one time.” We do not believe this will have an adverse effect on any of the licensing objectives as it is a minor variation to increase operating flexibility. We have operated under our Licence for more than 15 months including hosting events without complaint from either local residents or other interested parties.

Condition 20 currently states: There shall be no pre-arranged private events authorised under this licence lasting more than 2.5 hours or accommodating more than 25 customers at any one time.

Application number: 19/16752/LIPVM.
