Hundreds of local residents anxious over alcohol sale in Watford park

After objecting to the licensing application to sell alcohol in Cassiobury Park, the local Conservative candidate has received hundreds of messages in a day backing his position.

David Fallon, who is standing for Park ward in this May’s local election, objected earlier this week to the licensing application to enable Jams Kitchen Ltd to sell alcohol for consumption in Cassiobury Park from 11am to 11pm, seven days a week.

The father of two young children, who is championing the opposition to this application, said: “As a local resident who has lived with my family in the vicinity of Cassiobury Park for many years, I believe that it is wrong to have alcohol served in and around a children’s play area for many reasons, not least child safety and vulnerability.  The licence, if approved, will also affect local residents in other ways, including an increase in noise and nuisance from people leaving the park at night having enjoyed listening to loud music until late in the evening.”

The licensing application is also for live music, recorded music and performances of dance.

David added :”Having spoken with many of our neighbours, I officially rejected the proposal to serve alcohol in our local park.  Since then, the council has taken the unusual step of extending the deadline to submit objections until 23:59 on Friday, February 9.  I urge residents to contact me ASAP and before the deadline at with any concerns you have, so I can fight this application on your behalf!”

A team of local volunteers hand-delivered over 2,000 letters from David yesterday, and in response he has received hundreds of messages from anxious residents who share his concerns.
