2. The amended layout including the covering of the courtyard and roof terrace which would reduce noise and therefore improve upon the current licensed premises;

3. A comprehensive set of conditions had been agreed to promote the licensing objectives;

4. There was one point of access and egress, thus providing a clear security point;

5. The DPS was very experienced and the premises would be locally managed and well run;

6. The type of customers who would frequent the premises would not cause problems in the area;

7. It was noted that there was no Police representation;

8. The premises was in the CIA but this had not been raised in any of the representations, but in any event, the premises offered something different to what was already available;

9. The Relevant Person’s concerns were noted but it was felt that the comprehensive conditions agreed would mitigate any impact on his premises.

10. GB04 to read ‘The premises licence holder shall ensure that all drinking glasses, except stemmed glassware, used within the premises are of toughened or safety glass to the appropriate safety standard, in that they shall not produce sharp shards when broken.’

The conditions attached are detailed in the following appendices:

 

Appendix 1 – Mandatory conditions

Appendix 2 – Operating schedule conditions

Appendix 3 - Conditions agreed with Responsible Authorities

Appendix 4 – Conditions imposed at hearing

 

Summary of the reasons:

 

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

 

1. The hours of operation were not late night and therefore the CIA was not triggered;

2. The application was not an alcohol led premises;

3. The premises was comprehensively conditioned;

4. Guidance under S182 of the Licensing Act 2003 acknowledges that the most sensitive period for people being disturbed was between 23:00 and 08:00 hours and this application was therefore not operating within this sensitive period.
