An application by the Osterley Park Hotel to change its licensed hours is meeting fierce opposition from local residents who claim they are already suffering unacceptable noise from the premises.

The application is due to be considered by the borough Licensing Panel on 21 December but a number of objections have been received including one from the Osterley & Wyke Green Residents’ Association (OWGRA).

It is claimed that since the hotel came under new management in 2017 and was rebranded as the Terminal 6 lounge it has become a party venue regularly holding events with live music and being a source of anti-social behaviour. There was a reported stabbing outside the premises in the early hours of Sunday 3 October attended by 2 ambulances and 8 police cars.

It is further claimed that a reconfiguration of the venue has been carried out without planning permission and that four function rooms now often host weddings and other events with guests entering from the Wood Lane entrance rather than the main car park.

This, it is alleged, has led to regular incidents of loud music being played into the early hours and occasionally fireworks being let off.

The representation claims that at least one person has moved away from the area due to the noise and that the current operation is affecting the mental health of residents.

OWGRA states in its objection that it is not against events being held at the venue but suggests limited the opening hours and asks for more effective enforcement of the hours of operation. It asks that outdoor areas should be cleared after 9pm and doors and windows should be shut if music is being played.

However, it adds that it believes the hotels management has had a poor record of complying with regulations and lacks consideration for residents. OWGRA claims that the venue is already ignoring conditions of its existing licence and that the council appears to be doing little to enforce them.

The application has been submitted by Stetson Property Developments Ltd in respect of Osterley Park Hotel, 764 Great West Road, Isleworth. If granted it would be permitted to serve alcohol indoors and outdoors until 11.30pm during the week and until 12.30am at the weekend closing a half an hour later.

The licence variation goes to the Licensing Sub-Committee on 21 December where OWGRA will be presenting its concerns.
