Decision of the Sub-Committee


    RESOLVED to grant the application for the provision of the supply of alcohol off the Premises Monday to Sunday 12:00 hours to 20:45 hours.


    The Sub-Committee considered an application for the grant of a premises licence under section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003.


    The application is for the supply of alcohol for consumption on and off the premises Monday to Sunday 12:00 hours to 20:45 hours.  The Premises are not currently licensed. 


    The Sub-Committee must consider whether or not the Applicant can positively promote the licensing objectives in the local area. 


    Submissions were made by Mr and Mrs Cokyasar, the Applicants.  Two objections were received from members of the public; the objectors were in attendance.  No other representations were received from any other responsible authorities.  No objections were received from the Police due to the Applicants having agreed a number of conditions prior to the hearing.


    The Applicants addressed the concerns received from the objectors in respect of littering. They advised that they obtained commercial waste bins which have locks from the Council as the previous bins were standard household bins and would do their best to maintain the service road to keep free of litter. In respect of individuals loitering and street drinking, substance abuse, the Applicants advised that they would be willing to install additional CCTV to cover service road to capture any incidences of anti-social behaviour.  They further advised that they intend to serve alcoholic beverages with meals which will be restricted to wine, beer and ciders.


    The Sub-Committee heard from the Objectors; the first objector advised that she resided 3 meters away from the premises. She was not aware that the application for licence had been made as the residents did not receive notification. The Licensing Officer clarified that the legislation requires that notification is provided in the local newspaper and on the premises.


    The first objector advised that there has been a long-standing issue with the service road where there is constant littering which has led to a serious rat infestation problem, street drinking, anti-social behaviour and personally witnessed individuals taking drugs. The service road is located behind the resident’s gardens and often residents can hear foul language being used by individuals who are often street drinking. The first objector expressed concern regarding the behaviour of these individuals and their negative impact around children particularly as they have to use the service road to access the train station and local park. The objector felt that the addition of restaurant that served alcohol would exacerbate the current issues which the residents have been facing and was not needed.  


    The Sub-Committee made enquiries as to whether the objector reported these issues to the Council and/or their local Councillor in respect of the street drinking, waste disposal and rat infestation and the Police for the drug abuses occurring in the service road. The first objector advised the issues regarding the service road had been reported to their local Councillor however residents had not seen any resolution  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.
