Alcohol Licence in Cassiobury Park
Many of you would have received my letter in the last few days in regards to the licensing application of Jams Kitchen Ltd, Daisy’s In The Park, The Hub, Cassiobury Park.
As a result of my letter I have received hundreds of emails in response from residents that were as concerned as me.
I wrote that I objected to the licence being granted in its current form as being a resident who has lived with my family in the vicinity of Cassiobury Park for many years, and as a father who has young children, I believe that it is wrong to have alcohol served in and around a children’s play area for many reasons, not least child safety and vulnerability.
The licence, if approved, would have also affected local residents in other ways, including an increase in noise and nuisance from people leaving the park at night having enjoyed listening to loud music until late in the evening.
It is with great pleasure that I could announce on Tuesday that we had succeeded! The application was withdrawn due to the high number of objections the council had received.
This is obviously a huge success for us all and a great example of how our community spirit can make the difference.
However, it seems the council are continuing to try to find a way to push this through despite the strong feeling about this issue. I have been informed that there will be an open evening at the Hub hosted by Daisys with officers and councillors. This will enable them to try and force the Alcohol licence through.
We need to keep the pressure up!
Having spoken with many of our neighbours, I have come to the conclusion that I must start this petition to ensure our voices are heard!
Please sign today and I will ensure we do not get ignored!
