In reaching its decision the Sub Committee considered the Council’s statement of Licensing Policy, the Licensing Act 2003, the Regulations made there under and the Guidance issued by the Secretary of State under S.182 of that Act. In discharging its functions, the Sub Committee did so with a view to promoting the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.


Having considered all the evidence put before it the Sub-Committee decided to grant the Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of the

This list shall be made available for inspection by Police and authorised persons (as defined by Section 13 of the Licensing Act, 2003).


2        A CCTV recording system shall be installed that is capable of capturing an image of evidential standards. The system shall continually record whilst the venue is open for licensable activity and/or when customers are present on the premises. All CCTV recordings shall be time- & date-stamped and maintained for a minimum of thirty-one (31) days. Cameras shall be installed so as to cover both internal and external areas of the premises. At least one camera shall cover ingress/egress points.

In Attendance;


Applicant                                   Ruth Olanike Labeodan

Applicant representative            Dr Dosumu


Making representation               Councillor Don Austen – on behalf of Kathleen & Daniel Funnell


The Chair welcomed all partied and ensured that introductions were made, all papers had been received and that all parties were aware of their right to be represented.


The Sub-Committee considered the application made by Ruth Olanike Labeodan for the grant of a premises licence in relation to Dynamic Enterprise, 3 Whinchat Road, West Thamesmead, London SE28 0DZ.


The Licensing Officer gave an illustrated introduction to the report and confirmed that there were no amendments.


The Sub-Committee was addressed by Dr Dosumu, who was acting as the applicant’s representative.  Dr Dosumu addressed the four licensing objectives stating that a compliant CCTV system covering the external frontage and inside of the shop was in place; footage was held beyond the required 28 days and all staff were trained on the system and how to make it available to the police or other authorised persons.  No customers would be permitted into the shop after closing hours. 


The applicant’s representative stated that all alcohol would be stored in the secured, staff only area, and served to the customer.  No customer, who was considered to be intoxicated or disorderly would be served alcohol and such an incident would be logged in the incident book.  Challenge 25 posters would be displayed and ID would be requested from anyone who appeared to be or was believed to be under 25; there would be no sales made to children or anyone under age.  All alcohol sales would be for home consumption and a Designated Premises Supervisor (DPS) would be on duty when alcohol was being sold.


The applicant’s representative concluded that only two school children were permitted in the shop and clear signs were displayed to this effect and all staff would be trained on the CCTV system, think/challenge 25 and the licensing requirements.


The Sub-Committee was addressed by the applicant, who re-iterated and confirmed her representatives’ address.


The Sub-Committee was addressed by Councillor Don Austen, who made it clear that his address was at the request of his constituent and their comments did not reflect his own feelings on the application.  He advised that he had been asked to raise the concern that there was already a supermarket in close proximity which sold alcohol and closed at 9pm.  The constituent asked that, if granted, sale of alcohol only be permissible between 8am and 8pm, and no sales made if the CCTV was not functioning.


All parties, with the exception of the Legal Advisor and the Corporate Governance Officer, withdrew to all the Sub-Committee to deliberate at 6.55pm.  All parties returned at 7.03pm.


In reaching its decision the Sub Committee considered the Council’s statement of Licensing Policy, the Licensing Act 2003, the Regulations made there under and the Guidance issued by the Secretary of State under S.182 of that Act. In discharging its functions, the Sub Committee did so with a view to promoting the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
