Seymour Centre New Premise License Application – Have your say

Seymour Centre New Premise License Application – Have your say

Neighbouring residents around the Seymour Leisure Centre are very concerned by a recent 'New Premises' licensing application which if granted could see the Leisure Centre used to host events any night of the week.  Not only would this result in a loss of community sports facilities but would also result in considerable late night noise and disturbance. The new operator Everyone Active which won the contract from the Council to operate the facility earlier this year has applied for a license to hold events for up-to 1,300 people.  Events appear to already have been booked. The “Ring of Honor” Wrestling event is being advertised for on Sunday 20th November and “Big Fight” Boxing on Saturday 10th October.  Further marketing of venue is already underway on their website http://everyoneevents.com/ee-venues/seymour-leisure-centre/

The Seymour Leisure Centre is a 1935-7 Grade II listed building which lacks the acoustic treatment necessary to contain amplified music. In the past, the centre has hosted events for London fashion week, so locals know only too well the daytime disruption this causes.  Events could run until 23:00 at night or 00:30 on Friday and Saturday nights. There is limited public transport close to the Leisure Centre so late night parking and taxi noise is also a concern of local residents.     

Furthermore, the Seymour Leisure Centre is supposedly the new preferred location for the much delayed Marylebone Library.  How the library fits in with the above licensing application remains to be seen. 

If you are affected by the lost or disruption to our sports facilities or the impact of licensed drinking and events then please make your views known to the Council by completing the online form here: http://tiny.cc/9ydhfy   You have until the 14th October to have your say.   Full details of the application can be found on the Council website, application reference: 16/09774/LIPN

Noise level

As a tenant in Seymour Place, very concerned about the noise levels if the Leisure Centre changes to a late night venue. This is a residential area and many have professionals live here.

I strongly oppose this application
