Mountview in Peckham wants to turn its roof terrace into a public bar and restaurant – with an extended licence.
The performing arts school already has a licence to serve alcohol outside on its terrace until 10.30pm every day. Inside it can service until 11.30pm Sunday to Thursday, and until 12.30am on Fridays and Saturdays.
It now wants to add an extra hour to its outside licence, so it can serve until 11.30pm seven days a week.
A statement explains the bar/restaurant would be run by the operator of Wapping’s Skylight, at Tobacco Dock, open from May-October.
“We think the activation of the rooftop will be a positive addition to the neighbourhood and make for a safer public realm at night,” a statement published by Mountview explains.
“We have acoustic measures in place to ensure minimal sound spillage and security plans to make sure guests leave quietly via a special entrance on the walkway between Mountview and the library.”
Anyone living in the area can visit the rooftop to find out more on Monday, February 10, from 5-6pm by visiting Mountview’s reception at the Peckham Square entrance.
