    Decision:

     

    To defer the review of the Premises Licence for Today’s Extra, 50 Kesteven Road, Stamford.

     

    The Legal Advisor referred Members to the e-mail that they had been sent on 25 June 2020 which requested that the review hearing was deferred.  

     

    Regulations did allow for a time limit for holding hearings to be extended if it was in the public interest.      The licensee was unable to attend and his legal representatives were also unable to attend as they were already in court on the day of the meeting.   The legal representatives were familiar with the licensee’s business and were trusted advisors and it was important that their client had a fair hearing.   The Counsel’s opinion that had been circulated to Members also supported the request for an adjournment.  From a legal point of view the reasons put forward for deferral were reasonable.    The Legal Advisor stressed that if Members were minded to defer the review hearing then the case should not be discussed.

     

    Members questioned when the notification had come through requesting a deferral and how many times an application could be deferred to which the Legal Advisor replied.   A provisional date of 24 July 2020 was mentioned for the deferred meeting, but this would be confirmed with Members.

     

    It was proposed and seconded and on being put to the vote agreed to defer the review hearing to a later date.
