A new Indian restaurant which has taken over a former pawn shop in Hornchurch will find out next week if it is allowed to sell alcohol.

Havering’s licensing committee will meet at Town Hall next Friday (April 27), to decide whether or not to grant The Curry Shack in North Street, Hornchurch, a licence to sell alcohol between the hours of 8am and 10pm.

The restaurant sits less than 100m from Emerson Park Station.

Public notice of the application was posted in the Recorder on April 6, and Havering Council has received one objection from a member of the public.

The Kershaw Close resident said that there were already five restaurants within a 100m radius of the site and that another was unneccessary and would lead to more anti-social behaviour, littering and increased rodent activity.

The outcome of Friday’s hearing will be posted on the Recorder website as soon as possible.
