The Chair welcomed everyone to the meeting.
a) The Licensing Department's Report
Submitted – the report of the Licensing Manager giving details of the application for a premises licence for The Griffin, Griffin Terrace, Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynedd. The application was made in relation to the sale of alcohol, live and recorded music, on and off the premises.
It was noted that the 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 that had been recommended by the applicant to promote the licensing objectives, and it was highlighted that these measures would be included on the licence.
She drew attention to the responses that had been received during the consultation period, and noted an objection from the Public Protection Department and proposed conditions from North Wales Police.
The objection from the Public Protection Department highlighted noise concerns due to outdoor entertainment late at night on the premises, which would lead to the creation of a public nuisance to the residents of nearby houses. Following a series of e-mails, correspondence had been received from the applicant confirming that it was intended to build an area for the provision of live outdoor entertainment, although this work had not yet been completed. The applicant expressed his wish to withdraw the outdoor entertainment element from the application until they were in a situation to implement appropriate measures. Consequently, the Public Protection Department withdrew its objection to the application, subject to the applicant confirming at the hearing that there was no intention to hold outdoor entertainment for the time being.
It was added that the applicant had agreed to include additional conditions in relation to CCTV, promoting the Challenge 25 Initiative and undertaking a risk assessment on the requirement for door supervisors, at the request of North Wales Police.
It was recommended that the Committee approved the application if the applicant confirmed that the provision of outdoor entertainment was removed from the application, and in accordance with the recommendations of the Police and the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.
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/her representative, was invited to respond to the observations

· Everything was ready in order to ... view the full minutes text for item 4.
