This report details an application for a Premises Licence for the provision of Late Night Refreshment for East Preston Perfect Pizza Ltd, 9 The Parade, Willowhayne Crescent, East Preston.
The Chairman asked if any representations had been received to enable the hearing to be dispensed with and was advised by the Licensing Officer that none had been received. The hearing was then formally commenced.
The Licensing Officer outlined the detail of the case for an application for a late night refreshment licence for 1100 hours to 0100 hours Sunday to Thursday and on Friday and Saturday 1100 hours to 0300 hours for Perfect Pizza in East Preston. Delivery only would be permitted after midnight. The Police had made representation in respect of the Crime & Disorder and Public Nuisance licensing objectives and had put forward conditions to address these, which had been accepted by the applicant – their representation had therefore been withdrawn. Two representations from the public had been received, with one being withdrawn, but Mr Allen felt his representation was still pertinent to consideration of the application.
The applicant had accepted the conditions put forward by the Police and had also sent a late submission to confirm that:-
· the front door of the premises would be closed at midnight every evening
· the front of house lights would be switched off a midnight every evening
· if delivery vehicles parking at the front was of concern it was offered for parking to take place elsewhere and for deliveries to be picked up from the rear of the premises.
Following the Council’s laid down procedure, detailed representations were considered from the applicant and Mr Allen, local resident, and questions were asked of and by all parties, which were responded to at the meeting.
As this was a virtual meeting, the Chairman then closed the meeting and advised that the Subcommittee would consider the matter and its decision would be conveyed to all parties as soon as possible, with a written response to be provided within 5 working days of the hearing.
For completeness of these Minutes the Subcommittee
That the application be approved, subject to the addition of the following conditions:-
· The Premises Licence Holder will ensure the front of house lights are switched off at 0.00 daily.
· Any deliveries from 0.00 will be run via the use of the back door of the premises.
· Any delivery vehicles will operate solely from the back of the premises from 0.00 hours.
