Representations

 

The Assistant Director Waste, Fleet and Transport Services presented a report (Document “S”) which outlined an application for a new premises licence for the provision of late night refreshment and the objections received in response to that application.

 

A Councillor in attendance at the hearing made representations in respect of his constituent, who was the applicant. He advised that these premises had been in operation since 1986, with the applicant being involved since 2016. He had recently become the sole owner and was applying for the same licence that had previously been in operation under the previous owner. He stated that there had never been any anti-social behaviour at these premises and noted that no report had been presented by the Police in respect of any incident. He advised that the premises were surrounded by other businesses which opened late and stressed that the applicant had the greatest of respect for his neighbours, who made up the majority of his custom.

 

The applicant also made a brief representation on his own behalf, stressing that he had never had any problems at the premises and that customers didn’t linger in the vicinity.

 

In response to questions from the panel, the applicant clarified that he had not applied for any seating, either inside or outside the premises and that he cleared litter outside his premises to a perimeter of approximately 10-15 yards. He also confirmed that there were other premises in the close vicinity with late night licences. He advised that the business had previously held a late night refreshment licence and that there was no facility for eating on the premises nor for the sale of alcohol.   

 

The Councillor concluded representations by stressing that there had never been any trouble at the premises since 1986 and that the applicant had every respect for his neighbours.

 

Resolved –

 

That, having considered all valid representations made by the parties to the hearing; valid written representations during the statutory period; the published statement of licensing policy and relevant statutory guidance, the panel grants the application subject to the following condition:

 

·         That the licensee shall ensure that the external areas around the perimeter of the premises are kept clear of litter and refuse.

 

Reason – it is considered that the condition is necessary to minimise public nuisance.
