Londis, Goldhawk Road, apply for 2am booze

Londis of 20 Goldhawk Road has joined the Walkabout and Nisa bandwagon by applying for an Off Sales Licence for sale of alsohol to be extended to 2am nightly - whichwould make it the latest operating off licence around the Bush. The Londis franchised operator already has an off sales licence from 11am to 11pm.

Local campaigner Vivienne James, Chairwoman of the Macfarlane Residents Association says this:
"If we are to encourage LBHF Council to introduce a Cumulative Impact Policy (saturation zone) for sale of alcohol, then this application would set a bad precedent if successful".
Objections to the Londis application by 15th Feb to - we stopped Nisa in their tracks, we can do it to these guys too.

The local media, having only reported Walkabout's point of view here, seem not to be reporting this one at all.


  1. Considerably, this post is really the sweetest on this notable topic. I harmonise with your conclusions and will thirstily look forward to your incoming updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the phenomenal clarity in your writing. I will directly grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates. Admirable work and much success in your business dealings! Please excuse my poor English as it is not my first tongue.

  2. I don't think anyone has ever said they'd "thirstily look forward" to my blog - I'm honoured

  3. It's ridiculous to ask residents on their opinion for a Cumulative Impact Policy and at the same time consider extending alcohol sales licenses!
    This should be rejected, and existing licenses reduced.

  4. Londis applied for a late licence until 2 am, not a 24 hour licence and in my view I don't really see what the problem is. There is already a 24 hour off licence at the other end of Goldhawk Road (Total Petrol Station) and there are two 24 hour off licences right by Shepherd's Bush Green (plus a few more not too far away), so Londis serving booze until 2am wouldn't make any difference when alcohol is already available ALL night at other nearby premises. This information was taken from but they only list 24 hour off licences so I have no idea about off licences that are open until 1am, 2am, 3am etc. but I would assume that there are probably loads of them locally already.
