One lovely listener has posted this very interesting comment on Plumsteadshire. In case you don't read other comments; see below in yellow text.
The so-called catchment area is a total farce. I'm sure we're all agreed that a late night drinking hole will have an affect on an area far wider than the radius of a strong projectile vomit. As such, we should be involved. This just tells me that
a) Greenwich Council want to pass this through with minimum fuss and
b) that Greenwich Council don't give a monkeys about the ramifications on the wider community.
Oh, don't forget D-Day is nigh. Get writing people.
Dear concerned Plumstead Common residents,
I have just been informed by the licensing office at Greenwich Council that the Licensing Committee hearing on this application will take place on
24 Oct 3pm at Woolwich Town Hall
This is where we need to go to argue the case against "Bust Da Rhyme" in person. Spread the word!
Also, I was informed that residents living outside a certain area who make written representations are not actually being considered. I got a rejection letter yesterday as we live just outside the said area! The catchement seems a bit random and the logic of it does not seem completely sound. It does not, for example, include some logical locations, like the far end of the Common towards Tormount, which has a pretty good (sometimes direct) view of The Ship a.k.a. "Bust Da..." and could be affected by people spilling on to the open green space at late hours, or indeed the houses on Heavitree Road and Close backing on to or facing the tennis courts and green space next to it, a good place to cut through if heading down the hill after a late night out. If you want to find out if your road is included in the catchement, ring 020 8921 8139.
