Declarations of Interest
No interests were declared at the meeting.
The Sub-Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) concerning an application by Kiosk 10 Limited for the grant of a Premises Licence at Kiosk 10, Chalkwell Esplanade, Westcliff on Sea, Essex, SS0 8JQ.
The application was presented by Mr M Bell (Licensing Consultant). Mr and Mrs Grant (Applicants) were in attendance at the meeting.
The sub-committee noted that no letters of objection to this application had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities, although a proposed condition was amended in consultation with Essex Police should the application be granted.
Three representations had however, been received from local residents, one of which was later withdrawn. None of the residents attended the hearing. A further letter from one of the objectors was received and circulated prior to the hearing.
The residents’ concerns mainly related to three of the Licensing Objectives, namely the prevention of crime and disorder, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm as the premises were located in an area of the seafront in close proximity where children played.
The sub-committee listened to all the evidence and submissions, and read all the documents. It had regard to the Statutory Guidance Notes and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy. The sub-committee further considered the four licensing objectives namely the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.
The sub-committee felt that the conditions proposed would be sufficient to address the objectors’ concerns. On the basis of the evidence presented to it, the sub-committee did not consider that the promotion of the licensing objectives would be undermined by the granting of this application. It was therefore:
That the application for a premises licence in respect of Kiosk 10, Chalkwell Esplanade, Westcliff-On-Sea, Essex, SS0 8JQ be granted, subject to:
(i) The Mandatory Conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place);
(ii) The conditions set out in Appendix 2 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place); and
(iii) Amended condition agreed with Essex Police set out in Appendix 3 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place).
