Harrow Borough Council to consult on Stanmore alcohol restriction order
A consultation on plans to restrict late-night drinking in a Harrow town centre during the Christmas period has been given the go-ahead by councillors.
Harrow Borough Council’s licensing committee gave permission to officers to start a consultation on the introduction of the early morning restriction order for Stanmore.
The order would prevent bars and supermarkets in Stanmore from selling alcohol after 2am between November and January.
It is the result of complaints from people living in the area of noise, fighting, and drunken behaviour from customers during last year’s festive period.
The council will now talk to residents and businesses affected by the plans as part of a 42-day statutory consultation on the proposals.
Officers hope to start the consultation on the plans, which will affect the area surrounding the junction of Stanmore Hill, Church Road and London Road, within the next two weeks.
If the order is enforced, up to 21 licensed premises in the area, including pubs and supermarkets, could be prevented from selling alcohol after 2am.
