The Licensing Officer informed the Licensing Sub-Committee that the proposed hours for Licensable Activities and the hours of opening were laid out in Annex 2 and that the premises already benefits from a Premises Licence. However a new application had to be submitted as the addition of an external area for licensable activities converting the rear car park into an outdoor area, was a substantial change to the premises requiring a new Premises Licence.

 

The Licensing Officer explained that the applicant had advertised the application, as required, by way of the statutory A4 blue notice at the premises and by advertisement in a local newspaper and that the application had also been advertised on the Council’s website. In addition some 430 addresses were consulted in writing and informed that an application had been received. 6 valid representations were received from Other Persons (5 in objection and 1 in support). The representations referred to matters that related to the prevention of crime and disorder and the prevention of public nuisance licensing objectives.

 

It was confirmed that all Responsible Authorities received a copy of the application. The Metropolitan Police as the Responsible Authority for the prevention of crime and disorder licensing objective, and the Council’s Environmental Health (Noise Pollution) Officer as Responsible Authority for the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective, initially raised concerns by way of Representation regarding the application. Following further consultation with them, the applicant addressed their concerns by making amendments to their operating schedule and the Representations were withdrawn. These amendments are reflected in the conditions shown in Annex 3. In light of these amendments, the concerns were satisfied and no representations were received from Responsible Authorities.

 

The Licensing Officer confirmed that copies of all representations had been forwarded to the applicant and had been made available to the Licensing Sub-Committee.

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee then heard the details of the application from the applicant, Katerina Zega and her advisor,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 21.
