Declarations of Interest
There were no declarations of interest at this meeting.
The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) concerning an application by Mr D. Mead and Mr A. Oukili for the grant of a Premises Licence at 69 Broadway, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, SS9 1PE.
The application was presented by Mr M Bell (Licensing Consultant). Mr Oukili was in attendance at the meeting.
During the presentation the applicants’ withdrew the application for ‘non-standard’ timings/hours relating to the following days: 24th to 26th December; Maundy Thursday; Friday, Saturday and Sunday prior to Bank Holiday Mondays; St Valentine’s; St. George’s, St Patrick’s, St David’s and St Andrew’s days; Burns Night; 29th February, Halloween and New Year’s Eve.
The Sub-Committee noted that two letters of objection to this application had been received from two of the Responsible Authorities, namely, the Council’s Environmental Protection Team and the Licensing Authority. However, measures had been agreed between the Council’s Environmental Protection Team and the Licensing Authority and the Applicants’ which addressed their objections, as set out in Appendix 3 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place).
Six representations had however been received from local residents. Two of the objector’s attended the hearing and gave evidence. Councillor Arscott was also in attendance representing one of the objectors.
The residents’ concerns mainly related to concerns of noise, public nuisance and public safety as the premises were located in a residential area.
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 69 Broadway, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex SS9 1PE 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 agreed between the Council’s Environmental Protection Team and the Licensing Authority and the Applicants’ set out in Appendix 3 to the report;
(iii) The conditions set out on the Applicants’ proposed conditions submitted at the hearing which replace the conditions set out in the Operating Schedule in Appendix 2 to the report, subject to the deletion of Conditions 18 and 20 and changes to Conditions 15, 21 and 22, as set out below:
