Yemek, 15 Palmeira Parade, Western Esplanade, Westcliff-on-Sea, SS0 7RR - Application for the Variation of a Premises Licence pdf icon PDF 124 KB

Additional documents:


The sub-committee received a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and the Environment) concerning an application by Serdar & Sons Ltd for the variation of a Premises Licence at Yemek, 15 Palmeira Parade, Westcliff-on-Sea.


The application was presented by Mr D Craig (Barrister) acting on behalf of the applicant.


The sub-committee noted that no objections to this application had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities, although measures had been agreed between Essex Police, the Licensing Authority and the Applicant, should the application be granted.  These were included in Appendix 2 to the report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment).


One representation had however, been received from a local resident. They did not attend the hearing.  The objection/representation related to concerns of public nuisance setting a precedent for other cafés in the area to provide a take-away service and alcohol, together with the potential for drunken behaviour caused by intoxicated patrons.


The need for licensed premises and the rationale for making the application are not matters for the sub-committee to consider.  The sub-committee did, however, recognise the potential hazard associated with glasses being taken off the premises to the beach and other nearby public areas.  The representative for the applicant therefore agreed that a condition to address this concern could be added to the licence.


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 the application, subject to the imposition of further conditions.  It was therefore:




That the application be granted subject to:


(i) The Mandatory Conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment).


(ii) The conditions drawn from the Operating Schedule, together with the conditions agreed between the Essex Police, the Licensing Authority and the Applicant as set out in Appendix 2 to the report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment).


(iii) The following additional condition:


 Other than factory sealed items, off sales shall only be provided in the most suitable toughened glass or non-glass drinking vessels.
