Monday to Thursday 16.00hrs to 23.00hrs

The Licensing Officer informed the Committee that the Police had registered an objection under the prevention of crime and disorder and public safety and had asked the licensing authority to consider adding a condition to the licence for the installation of CCTV. The applicant had indicated his willingness to have a condition attached and had already installed a CCTV system. The Licensing Officer informed the Committee that there had been incidents of public disorder at similar premises within the vicinity and the Government’s expectation was that police advised the installation and monitoring of devices such as CCTV to help tighten up problems.
The applicant, Mr Ghasemi was invited to ask any questions of the Licensing Officer but he declined.
The Clerk to the Committee asked Mr Ghasemi to confirm his agreement with the addition of a CCTV condition which he did.
Members of the Committee then questioned the applicant about his opening hours to which he replied.
A short discussion then followed about the CCTV system installed with the police expressing concern about its capability to comply with the police conditions put forward. The solicitor to the Committee was concerned that the police where asking the Committee to include a condition relating to CCTV when the Police knew that the applicant’s CCTV system was not suitable to comply with the same condition. The Licensing Officer informed the Committee that the applicant did not have to have CCTV installed it was not part of having a premise license, but the police had asked for the condition to be attached to the licence. Further discussion took place about the CCTV condition and the police requirements and its use.
The Licensing Officer then gave his closing statement and reminded Members to have regard to the four licensing objectives.
