The Bloomsbury Association reviews, comments on, and challenges licensing applications, with the aim of preserving and enhancing the quality of life for residents of Bloomsbury.

We keep a close eye on applications for bars, restaurants, and entertainment venues. This covers applications for new venues, and the changing of hours of operation for existing venues.

Our comments are based upon long experience of the detrimental effects of inappropriate licensing decisions, including increased crime and public nuisance. We aim to ensure that new or updated licenses do not cause any nuisance for the residents of Bloomsbury, or an encourage crime in the surrounding area.
