NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR PREMISES TO BE APPROVED AS A VENUE FOR CIVIL MARRIAGES AND CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS

I                Mark O’Neill                    of the         William Morris Gallery

HEREBY GIVE NOTICEthat I have made application to the Council of the London Borough of Waltham Forest under the provisions of the Marriages and Civil Partnerships (Approved Premises) Regulations 2005 for the premises known as the William Morris Gallery to be approved for the solemnization of marriages in pursuance of Section 26(1)(bb) of the Marriage Act 1949 and the registration of civil partnerships in pursuance of section 6(3A)(a) of the Civil Partnership Act 2004.

1. The Marriages and Civil Partnerships (Approved Premises) Regulations 2005 state that premises can be approved by the Council if, in their opinion, and amongst other things:

i)               They are seemly, dignified and regularly available for civil marriages and civil partnerships;

ii)             They have adequate fire precautions and other appropriate safety precautions; and,

iii)           They are not used solely or mainly for religious purposes and have no recent or continuing use for religious purposes, which is incompatible with the use of the premises as a venue for civil marriages and civil partnerships.

2. Full details of the conditions and a copy of the Application and the plan of the premises may be inspected at the offices of the Superintendent Registrar, at 106 Grove Road, Walthamstow, London E17 4BY during normal office hours.

3. Any person wishing to object to the grant of approval may do so by giving notice in writing with reasons for the objection to the Superintendent Registrar at 106 Grove Road, Walthamstow, London E17 4BY and which must be received within twenty-one days of the date of this publication.
