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 Ms Phoebe Parry and Mr Jack Morris for the grant of a premises licence in respect of 44 Broadway, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, SS9 1AH.
The application was presented by Mr West, the applicant’s representative. Ms Parry and Mr Morris were in attendance at the hearing.
The Sub Committee noted that no letters of objection to this application had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities, although the proposed conditions drawn from the operating schedule had been amended following agreement the applicant and Essex Police during the consultation period should the application be granted. These were set out in Appendix 2 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place).
Objections had however, been received from four local residents, none of whom attended the meeting. Their concerns mainly related to one of the licensing objectives, namely the prevention of public nuisance, and in particular noise nuisance, as the premises was 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.
On the basis of the evidence presented to it, the Sub Committee considered that the licensing objectives and the objectors concerns would be adequately addressed by the conditions imposed on the licence. The Sub Committee therefore:
That the application for the grant of a premises licence be approved 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)
(iii) The following additional conditions:
• The Licensee shall ensure that signage is displayed advising customers to leave the premises in a respectful manner and to close their car doors as quietly as possible.
• The use of the side door in Victoria Road shall only be permitted at the time the external seating area is in operation, except for the purposes of gaining access to the toilets and/or the smoking area.
