Snooker Club Update

West Norwood Snooker Club in Waylett Place

West Norwood Snooker Club in Waylett Place

The local police, residents, businesses and councillors have concerns about anti-social behaviour around the Snooker Club in Waylett Place off Norwood Road and the impact of late night music and drinking at the Club on West Norwood town centre and nearby residential streets.  The Snooker Club is used mainly as a night club and only a few snooker tables are left.

For a number of months the local police have been working with the owners of the club to try to improve behaviour at the club.  Sadly recent events, including the tragic murder of a young man close to the club in August, suggest this approach is not working. Local councillors have now asked the Lambeth Licence Committee to review the licence arrangements. The Snooker Club is licensed to sell  alcohol from 12noon to 5am everyday and for music & dancing from 8pm to 5am Wednesdays to Sundays.

If you would like to comment on the licence and the running of the Snooker Club you must write to Lambeth Licensing, Blue Star House, 234-244 Stockwell Road, SW9 9SP or email licensing@lambeth.gov.uk. The deadline for comments is Wednesday 28th September. The Licence Committee only looks at problems under four headings: public safety, preventing crime & disorder, public nuisance and protecting children from harm.

Alternatively you can  contact Cllr Jane Pickard on: jpickard@lambeth.gov.uk or 07805 943 085. Jane can pass on comments to the Licence Committee on your behalf  – and you can choose to remain anonymous.
