Has anyone else noticed the races taking place at the car park on Ewer Street.

On Sunday morning the whole area was littered with rubbish, leaflets, happy gas viles, trucks and lorries parked on the pavements and the area across the road sealed off with police tape.

I notice in the past local residents were going to review the licence:

Any other local residents got any thoughts?

The taped off area last Sunday was a result of a stabbing. The people involved had been to the rave!

It doesn't say the people had been to the rave, did you see it somewhere else?

I believe that the car park doesn't have planning permission to be run as a nightclub so although it does have a licence, without planning permission, it shouldn't be operating.

A neighbour at Rowland Hill House who is an early bird said people were parking everywhere, double parking on the pavements and in our forecourt and in Nelson Square. There were people all over the place, shouting, and car horns going off. Neighbour said this all started around 5.30am. No one can say that the people involved in whatever happened were from the late night clubbers, random passsers by or indeed, late night / early morning guests of the Travelodge. There was rubbish everywhere, litter, leaflets, those little silver canisters with the nitrogen oxide, and it was noisy. There have been raves at Ewer Street before but according to early bird neighbour, the aftermath was nothing compared to the chaos last Sunday morning

Might be worth letting the local councillors know as the police said they were happy with the way the event went.

Last night (Saturday March 30th) was yet another really bad experience with the Ewer St Carpark nightclub. Lots of drugdealing, fighting, shouting, public urination/vomitting and drunkenness. At one point a group of 20 people were outside our flat inhaling helium and throwing the canisters at cars and people (3am). The event security purposely stayed away until I asked them to come deal with the chaos. We had to call the police non-emergency.
Then about 4am a further horrific fight outside that made us call the police emergency and thankfully they arrived quickly.
Then 6:30am, seems a car drove into the ground floor of a building breaking the windows etc. It was chaos outside at this point with cars driving everywhere in wrong direction, blaring horns; watched a gang of about 20 people fighting, including with event security who had picked up sticks/planks of wood to fight off the crowds.

Just another example of how this car park, which according to previous posters operates illegally, causes chaos for the local area and residents, results in lots of people getting hurt just so the owners of the car park can make a bit more money.

If others have stories of Ewer St Carpark, please post here.

Ewer Street Car Park has a Premises, Alcohol and Music licence -

If anything this makes it much easier to deal with. Please address your concerns to:

Southwark Licensing Team
Community Safety EHTS, 3rd Floor Hub 2
160 Tooley Street
PO Box 64529
London SE1 5LX

If you believe the venue is in breach of its license (there's a list of conditions at the above licensing link) then you can complete the Application for review of license form.
