The report and recommendation of the Licensing Section.
a) Submitted – the report of the Licensing Manager providing details about Mr Kenneth Richard Williams’s application for a premises licence for Pant yr Ardd, Tregarth, Bangor.

In terms of background information, it was noted that a premises licence had existed for the property since 24.11.2005 but it was surrendered on 20.05.15.

In addition, five objections had been received from other parties based on the licensing objective of Prevention of Crime and Disorder and the Prevention of Public Nuisance. The objectors’ main concerns were increase in noise, disorder, litter and licensable activities provided in the beer garden.
