Avery Hill Park license approved

Greenwich Council's Licensing Committee last night approved the application by Greenwich Council to have a time limited license for the showing of the film Grease and to allow the playing of music and approximately 100 cars into the park to watch the film on Saturday 17 July.

Eltham South Councillor Eileen Glover represented concerned residents living near the park at the meeting, raising issues such as how the council planned to manage the event, noise levels, dealing with traffic gogin on to Avery Hill Road at the end of the event.

Thanks to the persistence of your Conservative councillors a number of key conditions have been placed on the grant of the license, including that there must be 18 stewards patrolling the event, regular noise checks will be undertaken, park rangers will collecting litter throughout the event and the whole site must be cleared by midnight.

If residents do experience problems on the night, please contact Cllr Eileen Glover.
