Declarations of Interest
No interests were declared at the meeting.
The sub-committee received a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) concerning an application by Daniel James Carter for the grant of a Premises Licence at 1 Parkgate, Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, SS0 7NY.
The application was presented by the Applicant.
The sub-committee noted that no letters of objection to this application had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities, however, measures had been agreed between the Police and the Applicant, should the application be granted. These were included in Appendix 2 to the report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment).
Two (2) representations were received from local residents, objecting to the application. None of the objectors attended the meeting. Their objections/representations related to concerns of noise and public nuisance, particularly in relation to parking issues, increase in traffic causing noise, congestion and exhaust fumes and highways problems caused by delivery vehicles parking within a residential street and mounting the footways. The use of a residential dwelling within a conservation area as a licensed premises without planning permission was also raised.
The use of a residential dwelling within a conservation area as a licensed premises is not a matter for the sub-committee to consider.
The sub-committee noted from the applicant the proposed model how the business would be operated. This was set out in the operating schedule from the application form and were clarified by the Applicant at the hearing. The sub-committee felt that deliveries could be regulated through the imposition of appropriate conditions.
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 appropriate conditions. The sub-committee therefore:
1. 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 Police and the Applicant as set out in Appendix 2 to the report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment),
(iii) The following additional condition:
“All deliveries to the business will be limited to 8am-6pm Mondays to Saturdays only. No deliveries to business shall be made on a Sunday. All deliveries to customers will occur once a week on Fridays.”
