Matters Arising

 

CIL Project to Improve Entrance to House

 

·         The Principal Curator noted that the application had been reviewed by a number of Camden Planning Officers, the most recent of whom had noted he had recommended the application for approval. In response to a question, the Principal Curator confirmed that CIL funding was time-limited and therefore he was aiming to have the works completed by Spring 2020.

 

·         A Member commented that two of the exterior doors to the House were no longer fit for purpose, given that swollen wood made them difficult to open and close in wet weather.

 

·         A Member noted that works to improve public toilets in the House were in his view urgent.

 

·         In response to a question the Principal Curator confirmed that phased like-for-like works to the toilet block would not require further planning permission.

Minutes:

Members considered a mid-year update report of the Superintendent for Keats House Charity 2019/20 and the following points were made.

 

·         The Principal Curator tabled a Licensing Decision letter regarding the House and noted that, in summary,

 

o   It would now be possible to deliver 50 indoor events per year between the hours of 6.00pm – 9.30pm for 100 persons.

 

o   It would now be possible to six outdoor events per year between 2.00pm – 9.00pm for 200 persons. The Principal Curator had noted 200 persons was not an excessive number as this was in line with the summer Much Ado About Nothing event that had attracted over 100 persons.

 

o   It would now be possible to sell a small line of Endymion wine in the House shop, which was felt to be appropriate given the link to Keats. Shop opening hours would be between 11.00pm – 5.00pm, or in line with evening events as appropriate. Draught beer would not be available.

 

o   In response to a question, the Principal Curator noted that the original application had been phrased in the broadest terms of 10.00am – 10.00pm seven days a week as the online planning application portal did not offer options to qualify timings further.

 

o   The Principal Curator confirmed that the restrictions related to the sale of alcohol only and that there were no restrictions on non-licensable events.

 

·         In response to a question, the Principal Curator confirmed there was CCTV provision within the House which was now operational subject to two cameras being upgraded – he would confirm to Members once this had been completed. The Principal Curator acknowledged that more signage highlighting CCTV would be appropriate from a GDPR perspective.

 

·         In response to a question, the Principal Curator confirmed that scaffolding had been erected outside the House to facilitate
