Councillors have agreed to allow a cafe to sell alcohol after calling for measures to stop residents from being disturbed by noise. 

Haringey Council’s licensing subcommittee resolved to grant the premises licence to Alp Cafe, which is set to open in 42a-44 Park Road, Crouch End, after considering the application during a meeting on Thursday, October 28.

The council had received four objections from neighbours who feared noise from the cafe and delivery bikes would cause a nuisance.

A letter sent to residents on November 3 states that the committee agreed to impose a range of conditions after members decided they were “satisfied from the representations that the noise from customers and delivery drivers could cause a public nuisance to residents”.

One of the conditions is that “no noise generated on the premises, or by its associated plant or equipment, shall emanate from the premises, nor vibration be transmitted through the structure of the premises which gives rise to a nuisance”. 

The committee also called for signs to be clearly displayed informing customers they should leave the premises quietly and not to idle engines or loiter in the surrounding area.

The committee’s decision is open to appeal to a magistrates’ court within 21 days from the beginning on the day on which the appellant is notified of the decision. Its decision does not take effect until the end of the appeal period or, if an appeal has been lodged, until the appeal is dispensed with.
