Licensing Act 2003 - Licence - Consideration of an application (made in accordance with s.34 of the Licensing Act 2003) for the variation of a Premises Licence for Deer Park Farm Retail Village, Unit 2, Doncaster Road, Thrybergh, Rotherham, S65 4BH PDF 406 KB
Consideration was given to an application (made in accordance with Section 34 of the Licensing Act 2003) for the variation of a Premises Licence in relation to Deer Park Farm Retail Village, Unit 2, Doncaster Road, Thrybergh, Rotherham S65 4BH.
The applicant was seeking a variation of the licence to amend the area within which licensable activity could take place, and to include the retail sale of alcohol (for consumption on and off the premises) in a new development (referred to in the application as a “micro pub”).
Following the submission of the application paperwork, 5 representations were received from 6 local residents.
The premises currently had the benefit of a Premises Licence (number P1030), a copy attached at Appendix 2, which permitted the retail sale of alcohol (for consumption on and off the premises) between the following hours:-
Sunday 1100 hours to 2100 hours
These hours matched the stated opening times of the premises.
The application was to vary the hours during which alcohol could be sold, and to amend the area covered by the licence which permitted the retail sale of alcohol (for consumption on and off the premises). The full application form was attached at Appendix 3.
The applicant had stated that the sale of alcohol in the retail shop/deli would cease at 1700 hours except during November and December when the sale would continue to the terminal hour given above.
The proposed variation included other parts of the premises within the licensable area as well as a recently developed unit referred to as a “micro pub”. This development represented a significant change to the activities carried on at the premises. The applicant has noted that alcohol will be consumed in external areas of the premises and had marked these on the plan that accompanied the application.
Mr. Rose and Mr. Cristinacce, applicants, were in attendance at the hearing.
The Sub-Committee heard representations from:-
Mr. M.H. and Mrs. G.H.
The objections centred around:-
- Noise, odour and light nuisance
- Potential for crime and disorder
- Lack of confidence in management at the premises due to previous failures to adhere to licensing requirements
- Access to the premises by children
In addition to the above, comments were received from the Council’s Environmental Health Service and a number of additional conditions were proposed by the Council’s Licensing Service (acting in its role as a Responsible Authority). These proposed conditions had been agreed by the applicant and would be added to the licence should the variation be approved.
No comments/objections had been received from any of the other Responsible Authorities as identified in the Licensing Act 2003.
Mr. Rose and Mr. Cristinacce, applicants, addressed the concerns raised by the objectors.
The Sub-Committee considered the application for the variation of the premises licence and the representations made specifically in light of the following Licensing objectives (as defined in the 2003 Act):-
The prevention of crime and disorder
