A decision on whether a charity and former Carthusian monastry can hold boozy events on its “medieval burial ground” has been delayed until September.
The Charterhouse, in Clerkenwell, is seeking a license to hold events, sell alcohol and provide live entertainment on its ancient green space.
Carthusia Ltd, a private company hired by Charterhouse, put an application to the council’s licensing sub-committee at the town hall on Tuesday.
But the committee delayed its ruling until September, amid reports The Charterhouse presented incomplete filing work.
The application has encountered widespread resistance from neighbours. One objector said: “I have a problem with an alcohol license being granted on a medieval burial site.”

Others complained the license will cause noise pollution and encourage anti-social behaviour in an otherwise quiet square.
In total the sub-committee received 32 letters of opposition to the proposed license.
