    REASONS:

     

    The Licensing panel carefully considered all the relevant information including:

     

    • Written and oral representations by all the parties
    • The Licensing Act 2003 and the steps that are appropriate to promote the licensing objectives
    • The Guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003
    • The Council’s Licensing Policy
    • Human Rights Act 1998

     

    The Licensing panel hearing was held in person.

     

    In making its decision, the Licensing panel carefully considered the application and all written representations, as set out within the report and the verbal representations made at the hearing by the applicant and Councillor Houston.

     

    The main areas of concern raised by the objectors related to protection of children from harm and public nuisance.  The panel noted that some of the representations made included matters that are outside the scope of the licensing sub-committee and the applicant is reminded to ensure that he addresses any other requirements needed to operate the business from these premises.

     

    Whilst noting the schools/nurseries in the area, the panel did not consider that these premises would create a risk to children as such.  It was noted that there would not be any signage or changes to the front of the property and whilst people may be aware of the business being there, it was an online business only.  The panel also heard from the applicant that he will be living at the property with his young child.

     

    The panel heard from the applicant that he would deliver parcels to the post office after 2pm each day for any sales that are made that day and that if necessary he would use a courier company to collect the parcels.  In addition, the applicant informed the panel that he would receive his deliveries of gin every three months – one pallet  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
