New Addington function hall applies to stay open until 3am

A BANQUETING hall and wedding venue in New Addington has applied to host parties at the weekends – including Sundays – until 3am.

The De Royal Banquet Hall, in King Henry's Drive, could face stern local opposition for its application to extend events at the weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The licence application is also for the provision of alcohol and the provision of late night entertainment, including music.

But manager Kayode Adedoje said there had been no trouble since he took over in 2012, despite suggestions from residents on social media that some parties had already gone on until 7am.

Mr Adedoje said: "It won't be like that. I have put lots of measures in place to make sure there is no trouble.

"If the music is too loud, we turn it down and I have to control very carefully any alcohol that is drunk."

Mr Adedoje said bookings for the venue were relatively infrequent and late events would only be occasional.

He added: "Most of the events we have here, people don't even drink alcohol."

The banqueting hall is in the Vulcan Way industrial estate and Mr Adedoje said residential areas should not be affected by noise from the events.

However, nearby residents claimed in the summer there was noise audible until 5am.

On the New Addington Pathfinders Facebook group, Alli Manley said: "My boy's bedroom is on the back of my house and I had to move him into my room every Saturday. It goes quiet at 5am, then all the cars would leave."

The licence request is for live and recorded music from 6pm to 3am on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and until 11pm for the remainder of the week.

An independent Facebook invite for the venue by a group called Visual Bourgeoisie suggested doors for an event in July last year opened at midnight and the party was to finish at 5am.

The application was received on January 23 and is subject to a 28-day consultation, by which date residents have to send in objections.
