Application for the Grant of Personal Licence

Report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) attached

Minutes:

The Sub Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) regarding an application for the grant of a personal licence.  An objection to the application has been made by Essex Police on crime prevention grounds.

 

The applicant attended the hearing and gave evidence.  Mr G. Burke and Mr D. Colwell of the Police Licensing Unit were also in attendance to present the objection to the application.

 

The Sub Committee considered all the evidence and submissions that had been made at the meeting and the written documentation that had been presented prior to the hearing.

 

The Sub Committee also had regard to the National Guidelines and the Borough Council's Statement of Licensing Policy.

 

The Sub Committee felt that, on the basis of the evidence before it, the licensing objectives, in particular the prevention of crime and disorder, would not be undermined by the granting of this personal licence as the crimes took place four years ago and the applicant had not reoffended since.

 

The Sub Committee therefore:

 

Resolved:-

 

That the application for a personal licence be granted.
