Louise Busfield, Dorset Police, referred to several letters of support that had been circulated by David Ramsey, agent for the applicant, in advance of the hearing. The Chairman advised that the Sub-Committee had not had sight of these as they had been submitted after the statutory timeframe for representations to be made and therefore the letters of support had not been accepted by the Sub-Committee.

RESOLVED that the application for a premises licence, dated the 26th September 2022, for the premises known as ‘Premier Westover’, 12 Westover Road, Bournemouth to permit the off sale of alcohol between the hours of 08:00 to 00:00 Monday to Sunday, be REFUSED.
