APPLICATION FOR A LICENCE UNDER LICENSING ACT 2003
1. This application seeks to permit regulated entertainment consisting of plays, films, live, recorded and the making of music, dance and the facilities for dance, along with entertainment of a similar description.† All activities are to be held inside between the hours of 09:00-23:00 any day of the week, with the premise closing thirty minutes thereafter.
2. The representations from residents (attached as Annex 1) specific to the licensing objectives can be summarised as follows:
Noise nuisance that residents already suffer as well as the potential for further nuisance, as well as crime & disorder.
3. It is important to note, as this is an educational establishment the premise can permit all of these activities without the need to be licensed providing the audience is made up of fellow students and family members.† The University wishes to capture a wider audience and to be permitted to sell tickets to members of the public, it is because of this that they are seeking to be licensed. The capacity of the auditorium is less than 100.
