At a hearing before the London Borough of Newham’s licensing sub-committee on 22 November 2016, a franchise of McDonald’s in Forest Gate, London was granted a rare 24-hour licence to provide late night refreshment as an exception to the Council’s cumulative impact policy. The policy establishes a rebuttable presumption of refusing all new licence applications. A series of proposed conditions and exceptional management procedures satisfied the objecting authorities that the grant of this licence would not add to the existing cumulative impact.
Gary Grant acted for McDonald’s instructed by Joshua Simons & Associates Ltd.
