A nightclub has had strict new licensing conditions imposed on it by the council for allegedly being associated with anti-social behaviour.

The Sync London venue, in the old Stratford Rex building on High Street, is no longer licensed after 2am, and licensee will need to get permission from either the police or Newham Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour Special Operations Team to run events past midnight in the main auditorium.

The licensee, a supervisor, or an agreed nominated person will also need to be present at licensable events.

The local authority still own the building and councillors made the decision at a Licensing Sub-Committee on April 11.

After approving the decision, Cllr Ian Corbett, executive member for insfrastructure and environment, took a tough stance.

He said: “This sends a clear, strong message that any crime and anti-social behaviour associated with the minority of people attending events in Stratford will not be tolerated.”
