Additional documents:


The Licensing Officer introduced the matter for determination and informed the Sub-Committee that Mr Manpreet Singh Kapoor at Personal Licence Courses UK had applied for a New Premises Licence on behalf of Mr Manpreet Singh to permit the sale of alcohol (for consumption off the premises only) in respect of the premises known as First Stop Surbiton, 27-29 Brighton Road, Surbiton, KT6 5LR.


The application sought the grant of the following:

·         the sale by retail of alcohol (for consumption off the premises only), Monday to Sunday from 08:00 to midnight. Following discussions with Responsible Authorities, the terminal hour for the sale of alcohol was amended to 23:00 hours, Monday to Sunday. The proposed opening hours are 08:00 to midnight, Monday to Sunday.


The Licensing Officer informed the Sub-Committee that the proposed hours of licensable activities and the hours of operation were laid out in Annex 2.

The Licensing Officer explained that the applicant had advertised the application, as required, by way of a poster 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 207 residents were consulted in writing and informed that an application had been received. 3 valid representations were received from Other Persons. The representations referred to matters that related to prevention of crime and disorder and the prevention of public nuisance licensing objectives. Copies of the representations were attached at Annex 4.


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 objectives and the Council’s Environmental Health (Noise Pollution) Officer as Responsible Authority for the prevention of public nuisance licensing objectives initially raised concerns regarding the application. Following further consultation, the applicant addressed the concerns by making amendments to their operating schedule. These amendments were reflected in the conditions shown in Annex 3 of the report. In light of these amendments the representations made by Responsible Authorities were satisfied.


The Sub-Committee then heard a submission from the applicant’s agent who explained that the lease on the existing First Stop shop on 60 Brighton Road KT6 5PP was expiring and that they wished to move to a new premise within a close proximity. The applicant confirmed the various ways in which they would be adhering to the proposed conditions imposed by the Premises Licence. The Sub-Committee had seen the late material submitted by the applicant containing    letters of support for the application from local residents. The Sub-Committee asked the applicant to clarify the times of operation of their current premises and whether there would be any differences. The Licensing Officer confirmed that the premises licence at the 60 Brighton Road Premises are 08:00 - 23:00 Monday to Saturday and 10:00 - 23:00 on Sunday. The only difference with regards to the new premises licence was the additional two hours between 08:00 - 10:00 on Sunday morning.
