A G E N D A

1. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE AND DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST

2. PUBLIC FORUM

NOTE - For this Agenda Public Forum applies only to matters falling within the terms of reference of the Licensing Committee except for anything related to Agenda Items 5 & 6. Public forum will not be accepted in respect of these items as it concerns determination of an application in respect of which notice of any objections have to be given to the applicants sufficiently in advance to enable them to consider and deal with them. A statutory process under which objections can be made was in place therefore objectors have had sufficient time to make their views known since the date when the application was first made and advertised, therefore the suspension of public forum for this item is considered both necessary and reasonable.

Statements and Petitions

Any local resident or Councillor, provided they have given notice in writing or by electronic mail to the Head of Legal Services not later than 12 noon the working day before the day of the meeting, may present a petition or submit a statement on the work of the Licensing Committee (see attached). In the case of a statement, a copy of the submission should be included. For this meeting, this means that your question(s) must be received at the latest by Noon, Friday 27 July 2012.

The notice should be addressed to the Democratic Services Office (Room 220), The Council House, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TR and marked for the attention of Allison Taylor.

The total time allowed for public forum business is 30 minutes.

Questions

A question may only be asked if notice has been given by delivering it in writing or by electronic mail to the Proper Officer no later than three clear working days before the day of the meeting. For this meeting, this means that your question(s) must be received at the latest by 5pm Tuesday 24 July 2012.

There is provision for accepting late urgent questions provided the Chair of the Committee has agreed to accept them.
