The Committee determined to reject the whole of the application.

 

 

Summary of the reasons:

 

The Committee had due regard to representations made acknowledging the following:-

 

1. The committee took into account the application, the limited offer of conditions on the application, and the three objections from the police licensing authority and local councillor;

 

2. The committee gave great weight to the objections received and that no substantive conditions had been offered or mediated by the applicant. They also considered the evidence given by the objectors regarding the potential for increased noise nuisance and anti-social behaviour in the area;

 

3. The Committee noted that the applicant was not in attendance to answer questions, or mitigate any concerns that the committee had, and so they could not be convinced that the application would promote the licensing objectives;

 

4. They therefore felt there was no option but to reject the application in full.
