 Cllr Carla Denyer

      Simon Margetts

The Committee considered the Application after hearing the representations made. They had regard to the Licensing objectives under Licensing Act 2003, the Councils Licensing Policy, the Secretary of States guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003.

 

The committee only imposed conditions which it regarded as appropriate and proportionate to the promotion of the Licensing Objectives.

Opening Hours – 09:00 – 23:00 Monday to Sunday;

Sale of alcohol -  09:00 – 23:00 Monday to Sunday.

 

 

 

 

Summary of the reasons:

 

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

 

 

1. The Committee found that the extension till 23:00 hours would not encroach into the normal sleeping times of residents and if the application had been later it might have triggered the CIA but in this instance it did not;

 

2. It noted that the hours for sale of alcohol would not be increased simply moved forward by one hour and that the applicant looked to significantly reduce the opening hours in line with the hours for the sale of alcohol. It was felt this had the potential as a positive impact on the prevention of public nuisance objective;

 

3. They also had regard to the fact that there were no representations from Responsible Authorities except for the Licensing Authority who had stated that they did not believe the CIA was triggered and did not object to the application. They also gave due regard to the representations from the Relevant Persons but were satisfied that granting the application for variation would not undermine the licensing objectives.

The Committee considered the Application after hearing the representations made. They had regard to the Licensing objectives under Licensing Act 2003, the Councils Licensing Policy, the Secretary of States guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003.

 

 

 

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.
