On behalf of the premises: Mr M Shoker and Mr Williams (applicants)

The report and recommendation of the Licensing Section.
a) Submitted – the report of the Licensing Manager giving details of the application for a premises licence for Costcutter, 90 Penrhyn Avenue, Bangor, expanding that the application was for a one-storey convenience store that would sell alcohol to be consumed off-premises. It was noted that the applicant had included appropriate steps to promote the four licensing objectives as part of the application. It was added that there was a club premises certificate for the building that had come to an end in November 2015.

Two objections to the application had been received from Bangor City Council and a Local Member because the hours for the sale of alcohol were excessive. The objections were based on the licensing objectives of Preventing Public Nuisance, the Prevention of Crime and Disorder, Public Safety and the Protection of Children from Harm. It was noted that the applicant had been in talks with the police and had considered adjusting the premises' closing time to 1:00am.
