    Report ENV724 by the Licensing Officer.

    Minutes:

     

    Decision:

     

    That no hearing is required in relation to the application for T.J. Morris Limited T/A Home Bargains, Unit 1, Dysart Road, Grantham

     

    The Licensing Officer presented report number ENV724, which related to an application for a premise licence in respect of T.J. Morris Limited T/A Home Bargains, Unit 1, Dysart Road, Grantham for the supply of alcohol 24 hours a day.

     

    Lincolnshire Police raised an objection to the application because they did not feel that the conditions proposed were adequate and did not fully promote the licensing objectives. Lincolnshire Police also wished for the hours for the sale of alcohol to be amended. Lincolnshire Police consulted with the applicant’s agent and they agreed to change the wording of the conditions in the original application to those suggested by the police.  The applicant also agreed to amend the hours for the sale of alcohol to bring them in line with those suggested by the police.

     

    Where relevant representations are made, the Licensing Authority must hold a hearing to consider them unless the applicant and any person who has made a representation agree that a hearing is unnecessary.

     

    The applicant had the option to withdraw the application and submit a new application with the agreed conditions and revised times for the sale of alcohol, or the original application could be presented to the Committee for them to decide whether a hearing could be dispensed with. The applicant agreed for the application with the amended conditions to go to Committee.

     

    The Committee considered the representation made by Lincolnshire Police and the subsequent amendments made to the application that had been agreed by both the police and the applicant. During its deliberations the committee considered the four licensing objectives, giving appropriate weight to their promotion; the amendments presented by both parties; guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 and South Kesteven District Council’s Licensing Policy. It was proposed, seconded and agreed that, as agreement had been reached between the applicant and Lincolnshire Police on the conditions to be attached to the Premise Licence and the hours during which alcohol would be sold, a hearing could be dispensed with.
