Decision:

 

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 variation of the Premises Licence under the Licensing Act 2003 in respect of the

as follows:

 

That the hours for licensable activities

 

 

the provision of late night refreshment (On & Off) shall be

 

Monday – Sunday

23:00 – 05:00

 

 

the hours that the premises shall be open to the public shall be:

 

Monday – Sunday

24 Hours

 


 

 

The variation is granted subject to the conditions as are consistent with the Operating Schedule and the conditions volunteered by the applicant as set out as follows:

 

All existing conditions of the Premises Licence shall remain on the licence except for the following amendments:

1.    Amend Annex 2, Condition 7 to read: “No drinks or food shall be served in glass receptacles”

 

2.    Amend Annex 2, Condition 9 to read: “A log shall be kept of litter patrols of which a full outside litter patrol shall be conducted on an hourly basis between 21:00 hours and 05:00 hours the following day. The log shall be made immediately available immediately on request to a Police Officer, Police Community Safety Officer or other authorised Local Authority Officer.

 

The Sub-Committee also agreed the following additional condition(s):

 

For the purposes of food delivery from the premises to customers by an organisation such as UberEats, Deliveroo or equivalent - there shall be no collection of food or refreshments from the premises by motorcycles, mopeds or scooters after 1.00am.

 

The Sub Committee’s decision was based on issues raised concerning –

 

Public nuisance, protection of children from harm and public safety.

 

In reaching their decision the Sub-Committee considered –

 

All written representations, the officers’ report and oral submissions made on behalf of the Applicant. The Sub-Committee also heard submissions from interested parties from Councillor Jones on behalf of Graham Key, and David Ingle.

 

The Sub-Committee was aware that the Applicant is already licensed to provide late night refreshment until 1.00am under the existing premises licence and that the variation application was to extend the hours for late night refreshment from 1am until 5am. 

 

The Sub-Committee considered the representations against the variation application and that there would be increased noise and other disturbance to residents by increased vehicles attending the premises and in particular noise from mopeds and motor cycles used for deliveries from the premises used by customers using Ubereats and similar service providers.  The Sub-Committee noted the representations regarding litter generated from the premises and the litter cleaning patrols for  ...  view the full decision text for item 5.
