Planning Alert - New Green Lanes Betting Premises Licensing Application

Those of you who read the weekly updates may recall that in my last update I mused on the fate of 32-33 Grand Parade now that the planning application for an Estate Agent has been withdrawn. Thanks to a member of this site, I now have that info. The member has asked me to pass it on.

A licensing application for the site has now been made on behalf of a betting premises. Any comments on the application need to be made by 26th October to:

Daliah Barrett (Lead Officer - Licensing)
Haringey Council - Licensing Authority
Urban Environment
Civic Centre
High Road
Wood Green

For goodness sake, do we really need another betting shop? I'm trying to think what else could come in to add a bit of variety and actually run profitably, but surely the needs of gamblers are more than fulfilled with the 3-4 shops already here...
Yup! If you look at the news archive for 31st Aug, you see that the infamous Mario Petrou successfully co-ordinated a campaign against a gaming arcade. Sadly, he dosen't believe in computers. So let's hope he gets to haer about this application through another route!
Further info: If you decide to write to Daliah about this it is important to bear in mind that there are very few grounds on which a gambling license can be rejected: Daliah intimated that crime and disorder is the most likely to be successful - I believe the other is corruption of youth or particularly vulnerable people.
I'll give you 33-1 it gets refused!
