    Decision:

     

    That a hearing could be dispensed with in respect of Stray’s, 9 High Street, Stamford.

     

    The Licensing Officer presented report ENV747 which concerned an application for a new premise licence in respect of Stray’s, 9 High Street, Stamford for the supply of alcohol Monday to Thursday and Saturday 8:00 to 16:00 and Friday 8:00 to 22:00.  Under the Live Music Act 2012, the provision of live music and the provision of recorded music are automatically granted between the hours of 8:00 and 23:00.

     

    On submission of the application the applicant was asked if she had contacted any of the Responsible Authorities, the applicant indicated that she had not.  Copies of the application was sent to all Responsible Authorities.

     

    On 27 February 2020 an e-mail was received from Lincolnshire Police objecting to the application.  Although the conditions were acceptable in principle, the Police felt that they were not adequate or fully promoted the Licensing Objectives.   The Police commented in their representation that the applicant had not contacted them prior to submitting the application.

     

    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 was unnecessary.

     

    Discussions took place between the Police and the applicant and agreement was reached to replace some of the conditions and add further conditions.  Correspondence received from both parties confirmed that a hearing was not necessary and could be dispensed with if the Licensing Authority agreed.

     

    Members options were to consider the representations made and the subsequent amendments made to the application in agreement with the Police and the applicant.  To determine whether they agreed that a hearing was not necessary and could be dispensed with bearing in mind appropriate steps to promote the four Licensing Objectives, the representations presented by both parties, guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 and South Kesteven District Council’s Licensing Policy.

     

    As all parties had agreed the conditions and taking into consideration the promotion of the four licensing objectives and all relevant guidance and policies it was proposed, seconded and agreed that a hearing could be dispensed with.
