To approve arrangements for forming and chairing Licensing Sub- Committees.

Minutes:

 

The Committee considered a report which set out proposed arrangements for forming and chairing Licensing Sub-Committees.

 

The Licensing Act 2003 (Section 9(1) and 10(1)) requires that the Licensing Committee must meet to establish its Sub-Committees.  Consequently, the Licensing Committee is convened as early as possible in the new municipal year to consider the appointment of its members to Licensing Sub-Committees and the arrangements for chairing those meetings, so that there will be no delay in convening a Sub-Committee should it be required early in the new municipal year, given that licensing hearings must be convened within statutory timescales.

 

The arrangements for Sub-Committee meetings proposed in the report were in accordance with those introduced in previous years since 2012/13 (which have since then been agreed unanimously by the Licensing Committee) as follows:.

 

·           Membership: Licensing Sub-Committees to be formed by drawing three Members from the full pool of the membership of the Committee (i.e. 15 members).

·           Chairing: Chairs would be appointed at each Licensing Sub Committee meeting.

·           Attendance: To fairly share responsibility for attendance at the Sub-Committees across the membership of the Committee so far as was possible

 

 

RESOLVED that the arrangements for forming and chairing Licensing Sub-Committees as set out paragraphs 5-8 of the report (and as summarised above - the same arrangements as agreed by the Committee each year since 2012/13) be confirmed for 2019/20.

 

Voting - unanimous
