An email had also been received from Mr Payne, LSL Solicitors, representing 6 objectors, advising that he had received instructions not to attend the hearing because of the associated cost to private individuals, however, he asked that the sub-committee carefully consider the application and the proposals for conditions that had been advanced by both parties.

 

The Chairman noted that Mr Somannolla had withdrawn his objection prior to the hearing and would no longer be attending.   

 

The Licensing Officer presented a report, a copy of which had been circulated 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 following the receipt of representations from six ‘other persons’ against the application on the grounds that it would undermine the prevention of crime and disorder, prevention of public nuisance and protection of children from harm licensing objectives.
