Summary of Application

 

The Sub Committee has determined an application for a New Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 (“The Act”). The Premises are located within St James’s Ward and in the West End Buffer Special Consideration Zone. The EURO 2020 Fan Zone at Trafalgar Square is one of two official UEFA Festival sites within London, where families, neighbours and fans can come together and enjoy the UEFA European football championship tournament. The area applied for has been used for a number of temporary events and currently holds a time limited premises licence.

 

Originally scheduled to take place in 2020, but postponed until 2021, the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA EURO 2020 or simply EURO 2020 is scheduled to be the 16th UEFA European Football Championship, the quadrennial international men's football championship of Europe organised by UEFA. The tournament is now scheduled to be held in 12 cities in 12 European countries from 11 June to 11 July 2021. London’s Wembley Stadium will host 7 matches of UEFA EURO 2020, including both semi-finals and the final. Hosting EURO 2020 will see the City welcome some of the world’s best players and teams to compete for one of the biggest trophies in the game.

 

Trafalgar Square would feature match screenings, exciting activations and food and drink outlets. This application does not seek permission for the sale of alcohol off the premises. The site is a secure, fenced off area incorporating Trafalgar Square, the North Terrace, Pall Mall East, and Morley’s Hill. The purpose is to provide a space for public broadcast of a limited number of UEFA EURO 2020 football matches. Licensable activity will include the playing of live and recorded music, films, and the sale of alcohol on site. The site will be secured by a 2.4-metre-high steel shield fence around its perimeter, with two main entrances managed by security. Entrance will be by advance ticket only which will be. allocated by a free ballot. There will be sufficient emergency exits within the perimeter fencing. The terrain is predominantly hard standing. The Event Phase (32 days) will be divided into Match Screening Days, Activation Days and Non-Event Days.

Summary Decision

 

The Committee has determined an application for a New Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 (“The Act”). The Premises intends to operate as a hotel with bar, restaurant and entertainment facilities and is located within the West End Cumulative Impact Area. The 12th floor is proposed to operate as a lounge bar and restaurant. The 13th floor is sought to incorporate an entertainment space with a separate private booking space room. The proposed maximum capacity of the premises is 1000 persons. The premises currently benefit from a premises licence (reference 18/00656/LIPN) granted in 2018 with the following licensable activities and operating times:

 

Playing of recorded music:

Monday to Sunday: 10:00 to 02:00 (12th and 13th floors)

 

Late Night Refreshment:

Monday to Sunday: 23:00 to 02:00

 

Sale by Retail of Alcohol (on the premises):

Monday to Sunday: 10:00 to 02:00

 

However, as part of this application, the Applicant proposes to surrender premises licences 15/02410/LIPT, 14/11478/LIPDPSR and 18/00656/LIPN should this application be granted. Licence 14/11478/LIPDPSR lapsed on 18 June 2019 and is therefore incapable of being surrendered as part of the application.
