Needless to say Enfield's cabinet member for housing, Ahmet Oykener , said the council “disagreed” with the judge's rulings.
He said: “It finds technical flaws with the consultation process which informed the scheme - which do not tally with the facts.
“The judge has ruled that the consultation mainly focused on gathering the views of local Enfield people rather than people living in neighbouring boroughs.
“While we make no apologies for putting the views of the people we represent at the heart of our consultation activity, we find this ruling surprising as we extended the consultation outside the boundaries of the borough.
“He has also ruled that we did not formally consult over a 10 week period. We actually ran the consultation over a 12 week period – two weeks longer that than recommended."
Oykener also announced that the council will be requesting a leave to challenge the ruling. He feels quite confident as he says that the judge did not find any fault with the licensing scheme itself, or with the report from which the decision was made to introduce the scheme.
