Licensing Panel refuse permission to set up next to Hogarth statue
The site off the planned stall from the application documentation
Hounslow Council’s Licensing Panel has refused an application for a German Sausage stall to be set up on Chiswick High Road.
The application was to operate the stall outside Barclays Bank by the statue of William Hogarth and would have allowed the sale of sausages, burgers and chips from a mobile unit Thursday to Sunday from 9.00am to 6.00pm.
The bid was made by Mr Hitesh Lakhani and received twenty objections including from the bank's manager and the William Hogarth Trust.
Chairman of the William Hogarth Trust, Val Bott said in the trust’s submission, “Our conservator advises that there is likely to a build-up of grease on the statue which could in the long term combine with traffic pollution from the busy High Road (especially the sulphur dioxide) to etch the surface of the bronze”.
The chair of the panel said after confirming refusal that this argument had been accepted. The applicant told that a new submission for a different location may be considered.
