Successfully represented LB Islington in an appeal against its decision to reduce the hours of operation (by 2hrs) and impose conditions on a late night bar / nightclub, following a review brought by local residents. The Winchester is located at Islington Green in the heart of the Council's cumulative impact area. It had one of the latest alcohol licences in the area (0400hrs).
The appeal was heard over 2 days with evidence from a number of local residents, noise officers, and the Police. DJ Newton upheld the Council's decision without amendment and awarded the Council its full costs.
