a) The report and recommendation of the Licensing Department.
Submitted – the report of the Licensing Manager giving details of the application to change the conditions of a licence in relation to door supervisors agreed by this Committee following a review of the licence in 2012 by North Wales Police. It was explained that the premises was licensed to sell late night refreshments, seven days a week, and currently this was conditional to having door supervisors, who were registered with the Security Industry Authority, present at the premises from 23.00 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings until the premises closed, as well as on the Sunday evening before any Monday bank holiday.
It was noted that Licensing Authority officers had sufficient evidence that the application had been submitted in accordance with the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003 and the relevant regulations.
Reference was made to the measures recommended by the applicant to promote the licensing objectives along with the responses received during the consultation period.
It was noted that following the consultation period, a response had been received from North Wales Police. The Police did not object to the proposal to employ door supervisors from midnight onwards on weekends and on the Sunday evening prior to a Bank Holiday. However, the Police did not support the intention of the premises to open for an additional half an hour on a Thursday evening.
It was highlighted that the applicant had not given details of the need to have an additional half an hour on a Thursday evening on the application form.
In considering the application, the following procedure was followed:
· Members of the Sub-committee and the applicant were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Licensing Manager.
· The applicant was invited to expand on the application.
· Consultees were given an opportunity to present their observations
· The licensee, or his representative, was invited to respond to the observations.
· Members of the Sub-committee were given an opportunity to ask questions of the licensee.
· Members of the Sub-committee were given an opportunity to ask questions of the consultees.
b) Elaborating on the application, the applicant confirmed that the application for an extension in the hours of late night refreshment on a Thursday evening was an error. Although he had sought to vary the opening hours on a Wednesday evening to 3:30am, the Chair highlighted that this was not a matter for discussion and if he needed to amend the licence hours then a new application would have to be submitted.
In the context of door supervisors, he explained that door supervisors were not required on a Thursday evening as the premises closed at midnight.
c) Taking advantage of his right to speak, an officer from the Police confirmed that he did not object to reducing the door supervisors' hours on a Thursday evening. ... view the full minutes text for item 4.
