Decision (including reasons if different from those set out in report):


The Sub-Committee considered an application from Mr Giovanni Interdonato, for a new premises licence in respect of Black Stone, Red Fire ,Basement and Ground Floor, 84 Westbourne Grove, London W2 5RT (“The Premises”).  The Presiding Officer provided an outline of the application to the Sub-Committee, confirming the following agreement of conditions, that the Metropolitan Police had withdrawn its objections; further that a new premises plan had been circulated to all parties that morning.  The Sub-Committee addressed the problems caused by late submissions.  In this instance all parties confirmed they would accept the late submission of the updated premises plan on the understanding that the same was to be provided to the Licensing Authority within 14 days of its Decision should the Sub-Committee be minded to grant the application.


Ms Kate Allison, Agent for the Applicant, advised the Sub-Committee that it had before them a new premises licence application for a pizzeria selling Sicilian style fish and meat dishes operating in the basement and ground floor areas of the Premises.  The Applicant also sought to operate a food delivery service from the Premises.  Ms Allison advised the Sub-Committee that the Applicant applied for: Playing of recorded music, from Mon-Sat 10:00 to 00:00 and Sun 10:00 to 23:30, Late night refreshments from Mon –Sun, 23:00 to 00:00, Sale by retail of alcohol from Mon-Sun from 10:00 to 23:30 and Premises opening hours, Mon-Sun from 10:00 to 00:00.


Ms Allison advised that any alcohol served would be with a substantial table meal and there will be no takeaway service; however there will be a delivery service to the local area which is important to the Applicant’s business model.  The Sub-Committee sought further clarification on what percentage of the Applicant’s business would be based on deliveries.   Ms Allison confirmed that deliveries would make up 50% of the Applicant’s business. Ms Allison also confirmed that the Applicant would amend the opening hours to the public to the WCC core hours and has accepted conditions proposed by the Police.
