2.               Details of Relevant Representations

 

There was one representation against this application submitted by the owner of the flats opposite the premises.

 

There was one representation against this application from a responsible authority.

 

The objection from Mr Stephenson objected under the prevention of crime and disorder and prevention of public nuisance licensing objectives.

 

The objection from Mr Campbell, representing the Council’s licensing team, objected under the licensing objectives of Prevention of Crime & Disorder, Public Safety, Prevention of Public Nuisance and the Protection of Children from Harm.

 

Those making representations were concerned that granting the licence would lead to increased noise and nuisance in the area, and to the risk of crime and disorder associated with late-night drinking. Mr Campbell in his written representations also expressed the view that the application did not adequately address cumulative impact and was unclear as to whether the premises were to be run as a restaurant or bar, or both.

 

The premises lay within a cumulative impact zone. The Council’s statement of licensing policy created a rebuttable presumption that applications for new premises licences would normally be refused, unless the applicant could demonstrate why the operation of the premises involved would not add to the cumulative impact and not impact adversely on the promotion of the licensing objectives.

The exception to this policy will be for applications for restaurants where alcohol is sold ancillary to a table meal and the terminal licensing hour is in line with the Policy.
