Thanks to one lovely listener who has underlined the deadline date for letters of objection to the Ship's proposal (see below). This Friday! Given the limited time, I'd suggest not to use the postal system, so email or wander down to Woolwich and hand your letter in person.
For a sense of balance, I guess supporters of The Ship should also attend the council meeting when a date is in the diary.
Letters to the council regarding The Ship’s licence application need to be received by the Council by
THIS FRIDAY - 18 SEPT 2009.
In order for your representations/objections to be considered valid, you need to address one or more of the following issues:
- protection of children from harm
- public safety
- prevention of public nuisance
- prevention of crime and disorder
The licensing committee are obligated to safeguard these objectives.
Send your letters and petitions to:
Trading Standards & Licensing
Community Safety & Integrated Enforcement
Woolwich High Street
London SE18 6DN
The meeting at which the application and any representations/objections are to be considered is still to be scheduled. Please keep your eyes and ears open for the date and make sure you COME ALONG if you can.
Back in 2006, there was a record turnout of the local community (along with legal counsel!) at the meeting, which accompanied a phenomenal collective response of the local community objecting to the SAME items that the Ship owner is now requesting AGAIN.
Please, let's all make sure we do the same again, otherwise, all the efforts of 2006, and now, will have been in vain.
Let's not let The Ship a scar our beautiful common, and disrupt our quiet neighbourhood and peaceful local community.
Please don’t be complacent, and write your letter now!!
