Strong local reaction against proposed Newport Street nightclub

Local Labour councillors are supporting residents objecting to a nightclub opening in Arch 145, Newport Street.

The applicants have applied for a licence allowing alcohol sales, music, refreshments and entertainment until 6am at weekends and 4am on weekdays.

Councillors alerted local residents to the application by sending a letter. Lambeth's Licensing Department have received 18 objections, as well as a petition with 24 signatures, ahead of next Tuesday's Licensing Committee meeting.

Councillor Mark Harrison is planning to speak against the application next week. He said:

'Newport Street is a quiet residental street and is not appropriate for a late night club. Noise from the club and its customers risks disturbing residents of Newport Street, Lupino Court, Whitgift Street, and Gabriel House. I'm a supporter of our Vauxhall nighttime economy, but nightclubs can't be allowed to spread into quiet residential areas like this.'
