The Licensing Officer presented a report, a copy of which had been circulated to each Member and a copy of which appears as Appendix 'A' to these Minutes in the Minute Book. The Licensing Officer drew attention to an error in the report on page 32 and advised that paragraph 5, line 5, in relation to home deliveries, should have been deleted.


The Sub-Committee was asked to consider an application for a variation of the premises licence in respect of the premise known as ‘Chunkzz Fried Chicken and Pizza’, 683 Christchurch Road, BH7 6AA. The Application had been made by David Ramsey, Licensing Consultant, on behalf of the premises licence holder, Mr Chicken Club Limited, for a new restaurant and takeaway to provide Late Night Refreshment between the hours of 23:00 to 04:00 Monday to Sunday (indoors and outdoors) and on and off sales of alcohol, between the hours of 12:00 and 04:00 Monday to Sunday. The applicant had explained that although the terminal hour requested was 04:00, the premises would close its doors to the public at 00:00 Sunday to Thursday and 02:00 on Friday and Saturday. Only home deliveries will take place between 00:00 and 04:00 on Sunday to Thursday and 02:00 to 04:00 on Friday and Saturday.


The Licensing Sub-Committee was advised that one representation had been received from 1 other person on the grounds that the application would undermine the prevention of public nuisance licensing objective.
