Locals Apply for License to Sell and Serve food
A Hull café owner has been illegally trading for the past two months in Beverley road.
Mr Abdullah Genc, the owner, was proposing to sell food and drink after 11pm.
This has caused uproar in the community, as residents are unhappy about the appeal for the license, which will allow Mr Genc to keep open until 4am, as the levels of anti social behavior and noise in the area is already high.
Resident Miss Dawn Snowball said: “The noise is so bad in the area, it keeps us awake. My partner is a driving instructor and has caused him to cancel sessions due to lack of sleep.”
The premises are currently used as an adult social club where people go play cards, dominoes and socialise.
On 31 April 2016 Mr Genc applied for a license to legally be allowed to stay open until 4am each morning. Also so food and drinks can provide during these hours.
Humberside Police has recommended rules for the owner if granted the license. Including, no alcohol and that all food to be eaten on site. Also people under the ages of 18 must leave before 11pm
Many other residents are already unhappy about the current noise levels in the area with people hanging around on the streets.
Fellow traders Mr and Mrs Brine shared their concerns. Mrs Brine said: “At the moment noise levels are quite high with male groups congregating on the pavements on the street corner.”
Hull City Council has postponed the application because of the illegal trading. Mr Genc has been advised to take legal advice so he understands what he needs to gain the license and operate in this country.
Mrs and Mr Brine have written to the Hull licensing committee asking that their first names do not be disclosed and what shop they own. When speaking to them they asked for the same level of privacy.
