Summary of Application


The Premises operated as a hotel, and had the benefit of two premises licences from 2005 for the following areas:


• The London Marriot Hotel

• The London Marriot Hotel Pre-function Rooms


The Applicant was seeking to combine their two existing premises licences under a new single premises licence. Subject to the grant of this application, the existing premises licences would be surrendered.


The new application is for essentially the same hours as those on the existing licence, but the applicant was also seeking permission to provide Late Night Refreshment on Sundays which was not currently permitted.


The new application does not include a number of conditions that appear on the existing licences and some of those objecting have expressed concern in that regard, especially about the potential for an increase in the number of private events that might be held.
