    Report CSL165 by the Licensing Officer, Commercial and Operational Services.

    Additional documents:




    That a hearing is not necessary in relation to the application for a Premise Licence for the premise known as Malthurst Archways Filling Station, Harlaxton Road, Grantham, NG31 7AB.


    The Licensing Officer presented report CSL165 which related to an application for a new premise licence for the premise known as Malthurst Archways Filling Station, Harlaxton Road, Grantham.  The application was to allow the retail sale of alcohol between the hours of 00:00 until 24:00 hours, Monday to Sunday inclusive and the allow for the provision of late-night refreshment between the hours of 23:00 hours until 05:00 hours, Monday to Sunday inclusive.


    On 1 February 2019 a representation was received from Lincolnshire Police, a responsible authority under the Licensing Act 2003.  The representation was made under the licensing objectives of the Prevention of Crime and Disorder, Public Safety and the Protection of Children from Harm.  The representation stated that only minimal conditions were offered in the application and the wording was inadequate and did not fully promote the licensing objectives.


    Discussions had taken place between the applicant’s solicitor and Lincolnshire Police. The applicant’s solicitor and Lincolnshire Police had come to an agreement with regard to the wording of the conditions which should be attached to the Premise Licence and both parties agreed that a hearing was not necessary.


    Where relevant representations are made, the Licensing Authority must hold a hearing to consider them, unless the Licensing Authority, the applicant and each person who had made a representation agree that a hearing is unnecessary.  For the purposes of the Licensing Act 2003, the Authority is the Alcohol, Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment Licensing Committee.


    As agreement had been reached between the Police and the applicant on the wording and conditions of the Premise Licence, Members felt that it was not necessary to hold a hearing and on being put to the vote Members unanimously agreed that a hearing was not required.
