Council's Renewed Bid To Rent Out Furnivall Gardens

H&F Council has submitted an application to renew their licence for Furnivall Gardens on Hammersmith’s riverfront. The Council wants its own licensing department to allow it to hire out the park and run private events which will include the “supply of alcohol” and “plays, films, live music, recorded music, performance of dance and anything of a similar description between the hours of 11.00 and 23.00 Monday to Saturday and 11.00 and 22.00 on Sunday". You can read details of the application by clicking here.

If nobody objects this application will be granted on the 29th October. The last day for objections is the 28th October. Officers tell me that there have been no objections against this application so far.

The Council has put private polo events on in one local park and applied to stage public wrestling in another. I haven’t changed my position on this application and H&F Tories' other money-making scams since last time. I will therefore object. If you too would like to raise concerns about the extra noise, more litter, no parking provision and loss of amenity of a much loved public park then please email the licensing officer by clicking here and quote this reference number: 2010/01373/LAPR.
