CIVILISING: Cllr Andrew Morgan, inset, believes a new chicken restaurant will have a calming effect on Old Christchurch Road

First published in News by

A NEW late-night restaurant could have a “gently civilising effect” on one of Bournemouth’s trouble hotspots, it has been claimed.

Smokin’ Rooster was granted a licence to open a chicken restaurant in Old Christchurch Road, despite police fears it could undermine efforts to reduce crime and disorder in the area.

The restaurant will be open until 5am seven days a week and will not serve alcohol.

Cllr Andrew Morgan, the chair of Bournemouth’s licensing board, said they had confidence in the operators, who already run a Smokin’ Rooster takeaway in Poole.

“We felt it was a very well-run business which is going to offer more consumer choice in Old Christchurch Road,” he said.

“We felt they could add to the vibrancy of the night-time economy and have a gently civilising effect on that part of town.”

Owner Yaser Iqbal, who lives in Poole, told the Echo: “Our restaurant will be selling healthy, good quality food, offering a real alternative to young people.

“When you go out late there is not that much choice, especially if you want to eat in and have good quality food.

“We are going to offer something new.”

He said they would be employing local people and would work with the police and other authorities.

“We want to make a sustainable difference to Bournemouth high street,” he said.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for the police and we want to work with them going forward.”

The restaurant is set to open in the next two to three months.

No local chickens. fast food outlets buy in bulk frozen meat. Much of it reconstituted from the scraps. They are hardly likely to go to the local farmers for freshly killed free range.

The Smokin' Rooster in Poole actually serves very good food. It's one of very few decent fast food restaurants. The owner seems like a decent chap when I've spoken with him, he was even kind enough to allow us a sample of his chicken dishes and range of sauces.

For those still living with their mums, I provide an extract from just one council's guidance within London. Most councils throughout the UK decided long ago to reduce and control these emporiums: except in Tory deprived areas such as Bournemouth, Kinson, and Poole.
"The key spatial plan for the borough called the Local Development Framework (LDF) Core Strategy contains Policy SP03 (Creating Healthy and Liveable Neighbourhoods) which seeks to support opportunities for healthy and active lifestyles through planning. This includes reducing the over-concentration of any use type where this detracts from the ability to adopt healthy lifestyles. There is a body of evidence detailing the links between obesity and the abundance of hot-food takeaways. particularly in areas of socio-economic deprivation."

I recommend that our councillors do some research sometimes, otherwise both sewers and our arteries will to clog up entirely. The Echo can only do so much for its readers by reporting the inane comments of a councillor who should know better.

Anyway, I am off to KFC. Goodnight and goodbye.

What would calm down trouble in the area would be Dorset police objecting to the licenses of people who serve customers who are already drunk.
Instead the latest policy seems to be the same as towards drunks in the street, we don't do drunks-the ambulance service can pick them up and the licensing department at the council can object to licenses.
As drunkenness is the main cause of crime and often is a crime it is hugely disappointing that it is not seen by Dorset police as something they should be prosecuting on.
Drunks commit most domestic violence, all begging, most assaults and almost all driving offences. Why then is the solution to this problem not rolling up their sleeves and prosecuting licensees and locking up drunks in the street for the night, but instead grizzling against a non alcohol serving takeaway.

Why are so many anti-business, lefty, liberals on this forum.

For goodness sake we need people with get up and go to start business's in this area and create employment.

It seems most posters on here are dole scrounging layabouts who think the world owes them a living.

Well I've got news for you the world has changed. We need people with get up and go, who can make things happen.
West Howe and scrounging layabouts all in one post. Who'd have thought.

Just maybe us workers and taxpayers get a bit fed up paying for the cost of cleaning up after these entrepreneurs little 'businesses'....

,,and paying for the cost of policing these hot spots (calming my backside they are little more than a boxing ring night after night, and yes I have been out and seen it for myself)

...and paying for the NHS A&E where so many will end up in after not giving enough 'respect' to some chicken loving individual and his mates / or the 'are you looking at my bird?' brigade.

And f left wing liberals so you got that wrong as well (most complaining about these will be Conservatives but you won't get that being the cliche lover)

All new business should be welcomed, I am sure they will try as hard as possible to make a go of it. I wish them lots of luck and many satisified customers. There are some lovely places to eat around that area, Dosa world and Brix & Co are my favourites.
But if you're cooking at home do you prefer Whiskers of Ceaser's?

Council estates like yours are bred through left parties securing votes for charity. If you do work then you don't belong there anymore.

I don't understand the need for people to be eating a meal this close to breakfast time!
Which comes first the chicken or the egg.

Does anyone actually believe that drivel?
I don't believe anything that is said when the word councillor is used to describe the person saying it.

While you are eat it, what about all the businesses who don't serve drunks having to pay for bouncers as required by the council in case the drunks they have created cause trouble elsewhere?
