The Chairman made introductions and explained the procedure for the hearing which was agreed by all parties.

The Licensing Manager 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 sub-committee was asked to consider an application for a new premises licence for Juniper Tree Catering Ltd, 38 Salterns Way, Poole for the supply of alcohol on and off the premises between the hours of 08:00 – 23:00 Monday to Sunday.

The sub-committee was advised that the application had resulted in four representations being received from ‘Other Persons’ on the grounds that if this application were granted it would undermine the licensing objectives.

Following mediation, the sub-committee were informed that Mr Day representing the applicant had sent an email on the 24 May 2021 offering reduced hours of operating on Sundays to Thursdays by way of mediation to the 4 ‘other persons’ who have made representation. In relation to this the Sub Committee were advised that the proposal is that the application be amended so that the permitted hours for the sale of alcohol both on and off the premises be varied to:

From 8am until 10pm on Sundays to Thursdays and from 8am until 11pm on Fridays, Saturdays, days that are Bank Holidays and on Sundays immediately preceding a Bank Holiday.

Further to this the sub-committee was advised that as a result of the mediation achieved Mr Donnelly had withdrawn his objection.

The following persons attended the hearing and addressed the sub-committee to expand on the points made in their written submissions:

Philip Day – Applicants representative – Laceys Solicitors

Norman Gomes- Proposed DPS

Nick Smith – Managing Director Salterns Marina

Jon Exton – ‘other person’ (Representing Dr and Mrs Matthews as objectors)

Patrick Mulligan - ‘other person’ objecting

Judy Cimdins - ‘other person’ objecting

During the hearing Mr Day advised of the amendment to the original application for the hours being applied for, for the supply of alcohol, made in response to the representations made to the application and in an attempt to mediate. The Sub Committee were grateful for the attempts already undertaken between the parties to mediate this application.

The sub-committee asked various questions of all parties present and were grateful for responses received. All parties were invited to sum up before the sub-committee retired to make its decision. Before concluding the hearing, the Legal Advisor advised all parties of the right of appeal.

RESOLVED that the application for a new premises licence dated 19 April 2021, for Juniper Tree Catering Ltd at 38 Salterns Way, Poole  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
