Representations:

 

The licensing officer in attendance summarised the background to the application and valid representations received as set out in the report.  Members were informed that the Council’s Environmental Health Unit had requested that conditions be attached to the licence in order to prevent public nuisance and these had been agreed with the applicant.  A number of representations had been submitted that raised concerns of noise nuisance and anti-social behaviour in the area.  

 

The applicant stated that he would be willing to answer any questions that the Panel might raise and his architect confirmed that the conditions agreed would negate noise nuisance from the premises.

 

In response to questions from the Panel, the applicant and his architect confirmed that:

 

·         Soundproofing would be installed on the party wall at ground level and on the wall with the adjoining residential building.  Acoustic attenuation measures would also be fitted.  The ground floor of the building would be a bar and the first floor would have an ambient use.

·         The kitchen would be to the rear of the premises and the extraction system would go through the back of the building and comply with building regulations.

·         An odour extract system could be installed in the enclosed area to the rear.

·         A condition requesting air and sound tests could be placed on the licence if Members were minded.

·         There would be a separate escape route for the upper floor.

·         Planning permission had been granted for the change of use.

·         The conditions requested by Environmental Health had been accepted.

·         Regular noise and litter patrols would be undertaken and customers would be asked to be quiet.

·         Customers would be dissuaded from loitering outside the premises.

·         The street area to the front of the premises required a licence and would be dealt with appropriately with barricades.

 

In conclusion the applicant stated that he had been a licensee for the past 29 years and owned another successful venture in Bradford.  He had a proven track record and wanted to invest in Bradford.
