Determination of Application following Relevant Representations
DETERMINATION OF APPLICATION FOLLOWING RELEVANT REPRESENTATIONS
DECISION NOTICE OF LICENSING ACT SUB-COMMITTEE
TUESDAY, 18TH DECEMBER 2018
The Sub-Committee comprised of Councillor Claire Cozler (Chairman), Councillor Ian Clift and Councillor Colin Hartley
The Legal Adviser was Luke Gorst, Solicitor
The Democratic Support Officer was Jane Glenton
An application for premises licence had been made under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003 by Lancaster City Council in respect of The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster, LA1 1TH.
Although relevant representations had been received from other persons, as defined under the 2003 Act, all parties agreed that a hearing was unnecessary following successful discussions and agreement between the parties.
The Sub-Committee was therefore convened to determine the matter in light of the subsequent amendment of the application following discussions between the parties.
The Sub-Committee carefully considered all the written information before it, and in particular the applicant’s amended application following successful negotiation between the applicant and the objectors who had made relevant representations.
The Sub-Committee noted that a number of conditions had been agreed with the Police and Other Persons and that the applicant now wished these to be incorporated into their application.
All parties had therefore agreed that a hearing was no longer necessary following successful discussions between the parties.
In light of the above, the Sub-Committee was of the opinion that it was appropriate for the licence to be granted in line with the now amended application.
In accordance with Section 181 and Schedule 5 of the Licensing Act 2003, the parties have a right of appeal against this decision.
Importantly, the parties are reminded of the statutory right of responsible authorities and other persons to seek a review of a licence on the basis that the licensing objectives are not being met. This would be particularly relevant in the event of any ongoing complaints about noise.
