This information is circulated to you by the Peckham Residents’ Network.

A local resident has reported that:

“”We have heard that the police have requested a licensing review of Blues (also known as ‘Good Times’), a night club, at 43 Peckham High Street. The reason is the history of violence at the club where weapons were taken to the premises and used. Two recorded examples of this being someone having entered via the rear fire exit and discharging a firearm, and on another occasion a stabbing outside the club.

Anyone who has views about this and would like the license to be revoked should write to the Council , saying so by 12 October. All the points above can be quoted as reasons for objecting to the continued license of the premises. Unfortunately as the deadline for representations on it is so soon, David Swaby who is the Licensing Officer taking care of this case said that we can write objecting to the license on Crime and Disorder and Public Safety based on what we know from the Police, and request from him further history on the premises so
that we can send an addendum to the letter after the 12th.

Owing to the strike, letters should be sent via email by 12th October:”
