Permission granted for just one new drinking establishment at Crystal Palace Park development
Bromley Court House has acknowledged the concerns voiced by Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London, and local residents on the 14 liquor licence applications made for the leisure development at Crystal Palace Park, and granted only one licence to sell alcohol without the need to order food.
The result protects the historic Crystal Palace Park and local residents from an increase in unsocial behaviour likely had the 14 proposed liquor licenses been granted. A total of 13 liquour licenses were granted: one for a bowling alley, one for a health club, one for a drinking establishment, and the remaining ten were conditional to alcohol being served with meals. These businesses will be restaurant type facilities, attracting a clientele less likely to cause disturbance.
Ken Livingstone said: 'I am delighted with the verdict. The residents have also expressed their approval as this modifies the nature of the development, and on a day when I have announced my plans for an increase in police officers on the beat, it is a relief to know that this development should now not place a high demand on police resources.'
