Davy’s wine Vaults and shop (161–71 Greenwich High Road SE10 8JA) wishes to have live music and a late bar until 1 am on Thursdays and up to 2 am over Fridays and Saturdays in its wine bar vaults. There is currently a lot of noise emanating from the outside bar of Davy’s. I think that a late licence will attract people from all over Greenwich, creating a huge increase in footfall to and especially from the venue. Unless there is specific soundproofing I am wondering how the music noise will be contained.
There will be no DLR or mainline trains after midnight, so customers will gather outside the venue before finding their way home in taxis or by other means. The outside area of Davy’s is tiny, and has no provision for parking of any vehicles or for more than a few people to stand in. It is only metres from flats and residential streets so at turning-out time customers will cause unacceptable noise and nuisance to local residents.
Currently there are single yellow lines on Greenwich High Road opposite Davy’s and outside Maitland House (three residential blocks of flats), and cars are consistently parked there by visitors to Greenwich. The local residents’ car parking spaces are also used, particularly those in Langdale Road – as 5 pm is the cut-off point for restrictions – which causes nuisance as drivers arrive and leave at late hours. I am hoping that local residents will be able to foresee the problems this licence will cause in future if left unchecked and I urge all ATA residents to object in writing by Wednesday 29 April to;
