The license application for the Ship Pub

We have a little update regarding The Ship pub in Plumstead. It appears that the application for a license is probably genuine, however no application has actually been submitted as of yet. What do we mean by that? It looks like the applicant has obtained the necessary documentation pack from the Council but possibly misunderstood the process.

Thus they've assumed that all they need to do is put the notice up and that consitutes an application. However, it might also be that the application has simply been lost in the post.As some will recall the Council advised recently that sending mail to them was not a guaranteed form of communication because Royal Mail is appalling bad.

The long and short of it is that any of the groups saying that they're putting petitions together have more time to get signatures then they think. The 28 days notice does not begin until the Council acknowledges it has received an application.

Great investigative work Greenwich Watch.

We've posted letters through some neighbour's letterboxes yesterday to try and inform those who don't have access to the internet.

I've also been in contact with The Plumstead Common Environment Group who are on the Council's case too.

There's nothing like a community pulling together is there.

Thanks for all your info.
