Havana Seeks Extension of Hours

The owner of one of the Havana cafes at 1363 London Rd is seeking to extend opening hours to 1am. Under its planning permission it is meant to close at 11pm, but it is frequently still has customers after that time.

The owner argues: ‘There is a higher demand in the business at 1363 later on in the evening, a late night application was put through and approved however we have been advised the application must be amended. The late night license number is 14/00665/LIPREM. The license allows Friday and Saturday up until 2am and the rest of the week up until 1am.

We would like to extend condition 3 opening hours up to 1am keeping within our licensed limits.’

The Residents Associations have been pressing the Council to take action to end the smoking inside the premises as this contravenes the non-smoking laws.

Residents in shops above are disturbed by the noise of customers late at night.

If you wish to oppose the application please do so by going to


and typing in either the address 1363 London Road or the application number  (16/04504/CONR)
