Walaiti Rathore, a licensing specialist at Fraser Brown, has worked with KLD Investment Limited to obtain a Premises Licence for a site located at Lower Parliament Street within Nottingham City Council’s saturation zone.
The new licence allows the sale of alcohol until 2.00am and, the provision of regulated entertainment and late night refreshment until 4.00am.
Walaiti said: “KLD Investment Limited, presented an impressive business concept but it was based on providing most of the licensable activities until 4.00am. This was always going to be very challenging as obtaining a new Premises Licence until 4.00am in a saturation zone is rare.
“We worked closely with the Police and agreed a proposal which addressed their concerns and allowed the business to operate until 4.00am. This outcome was vital for the operator’s concept to work.
“The new premises, which I understand will be open in April next year, will provide diversity to the Nottingham’s late night offering as well as create employment which will benefit the local night time economy.”
Junxian Li, a director of KLD Investment Limited, said: “We are very pleased with Walaiti and Fraser Brown’s efforts to obtain a late licence for us. This is our second site after successfully operating a similar concept in Leicester and we now have plans to expand in other towns and cities and will no doubt be working with Fraser Brown again.”
Now that the licence has been secured, renovation work will start onsite.
