Additional documents:


Ms Daliah Barrett, Licensing Team Leader, informed the Sub-Committee that:

·      Paragraph 1.1 of the officer’s report detailed the list of dates that the Notice Giver had provided and the Temporary Event Notice (TEN).

·      If a premises had a premises licence, then a TEN could be submitted if licensable activity needed to be extended beyond the operating hours.

·      The notice giver was asking for an extension to the operating hours until 03:00.

·      The matter was before the Sub-Committee as objections had been received from the Police and the Council’s Noise team.

·      The Notice GIver was seeking the extension of the sale of alcohol, regulated entertainment and light night refreshment.

·      Statutory consultations had taken place between the Notice Giver, the Police and the Noise Team as the notice was required to be provided to all responsible authorities.

·      The Notice Giver was required to provide the TEN ten days before the first scheduled event and if a member of a responsible authority felt that it undermined the licensing objectives, then the responsible authority had the right to object within three days of receiving the TEN.

·      A late TENs could also be provided between five to ten working days, but if the responsible authority was to object to such a TEN, then the event could not go ahead.

·      The premises had been subject to a review application which had been submitted by residents in June 2021.

·      The premises had operated as a wine bar and had a history of noise complaints. This had increased after the current premises licence holder had taken charge of the premises. The premises appeared to operate as a nightclub and those living nearby who were used to hearing noise from the premises experienced an increase in noise and new clientele as patrons of the premises.

·      The review application was submitted in June 2021 following noise and nuisance complaints and cited on 21 and 23 June as particularly problematic.

·      The premises licence holder had not transferred or varied the licence to ensure that the sale of alcohol had been authorised.

·      The premises had previously operated without the correct authorisation and this was corrected in July 2021.

·      The premises allowed the sale of alcohol until 01:00 on Friday and Saturday and until 00:00 for the rest of the week.

·      The supply of alcohol was for consumption on the premises and the Noise Team had been called over the course of a weekend following reports of loud music. A letter was hand-delivered to the premises on 23 May 2021.

·      Officers visited the premises on 28 May and saw a DJ in the premises, people dancing and patrons consuming alcohol with no DPS at the premises.

·      Officers engaged with the manager who refused to provide the name of the DPS and the premises licence holder was issued with a Covid Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) which was later withdrawn due to an incorrect template having been used.

·      Noise complaints continued to persist over the coming months.

·      Evidence was presented to the Licensing Sub-Committee which  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
