Further delays to landmark South Woodford nightclub decision

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: A decision on the nightclub's appeal is expected on February 18 A decision on the nightclub's appeal is expected on February 18

A landmark High Court decision on whether to overturn a cut to a controversial nightclub’s hours has been delayed further.

Funky Mojoe, in High Road, South Woodford, has appealed against a decision to limit its license to normal pub hours after a history of anti-social behaviour associated with the venue.

It is the first time a nightclub licensing issue has been taken to the High Court.

A judicial review took place last week at which residents were told to expect a decision by Thursday last week.

However no decision was made this week and it has now been further delayed until February 18.

Cllr Richard Hoskins said: “It is such an important decision – nationally as well as locally – so I am sure the judge has a reason to take time over it.

“But is incredible disappointing for residents that we have had to wait all this time.

“But I’m sure Funky Mojoe will be pleased with the news of the delay.

“We are just being kept waiting.”
