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 18 representations against and 16 in support of the proposal had been submitted.  The applicant had also provided a number of photographs to substantiate the application. 

 

The applicant’s solicitor addressed the Panel and explained that the photographs provided gave a flavour of the type of premise that was being considered.  The alcohol licence would be from 1100 hours to 2200 hours and breakfast would be available prior to this.  Only background music would be played.  He reported that a number of steps had been undertaken to address the licensing objectives which included that the premises had a CCTV system, emergency lighting, was detached and double glazed and no gambling or unaccompanied children after 1900 hours would be permitted.  Members were informed that the business had been a caravan park since the 1950s and it had been purchased by the current owners in 2015.  Log cabins had been constructed on the site and the main house had been converted, with 12 car parking spaces available on High Mill Lane.

 

The applicant’s solicitor confirmed that the premises would provide 36 covers and serve the caravan park, log cabins, cottages, walkers and local residents.  He reported that the proposal had generated considerable interest, with representations received in support from users of the caravan park and in objection from local residents.  There had not been any submissions from responsible authorities.  The representations were speculative as to how the business would be operated and Members were informed that it would be well managed and an asset to the area.  Measures would be available by the way of a review of the licence if required.  The applicant’s solicitor stated that it would not be a drinking destination and food would be the main concern.

 

In response to questions from the Panel, the applicant’s solicitor confirmed that:

 

·         Originally there had been 50 caravans on the site, 29 caravans remained and five log cabins had been installed.

·         The premise was not currently operating as a café.

·         12 car parking spaces were available in the overflow area with four others nearby on the site.

·         Caravans on the site had  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
