The report and recommendation of the Licensing Section.
a) Submitted – the report of the Licensing Manager providing details of Mr Christopher Jere's application for a premises licence for Belle Vue, Holyhead Road, Bangor. In accordance with the application form, the nature of the proposed variation was to extend the premises’ licensable area to include the outbuildings in the beer garden to operate as a bar, and that the alcohol supply hours in the beer garden were the same as that of the public house. In addition, it was proposed to reduce the opening hours of the establishment from 08:00 - 01:30 Monday to Sunday to 09:00 - 01:30 Monday to Sunday.
Reference was made to the fact that the applicant had included appropriate steps to promote the four licensing objectives as part of his application.

The Licensing Authority was satisfied that the notices complied with regulations.
b) In considering the application, the following procedure was followed:-
· Members of the Sub-committee and the applicant were given an opportunity to ask questions of the Licensing Manager.
