Historically, the cafe has been allowed to place tables and chairs from 7.30am to 10.30pm, Monday to Sunday. They have now applied to extend that time until 11.00pm. As far as residents are concerned it is the beginning of a slippery slope.
Once this precedent is set it won't be long before other cafes and restaurants try to extend hours.
Anyone visiting Edgware Rd can see what could happen to Brompton Rd.
It would be unfair to impute bad motives for putting in these sorts of contentious applications during holiday periods, but one has to wonder.....
You have until the 15th August to write to Council objecting to the extension...firstname.lastname@example.org is the lady you should email.
If we don't object Brompton Rd cafes will all end up like this...
