Consideration was given to an application (made in accordance with Section 51 of the Licensing Act 2003) to review the Premises Licence in place at Pizza Pizza, 116 High Street, Maltby, Rotherham S66  7BN.


The Council’s Licensing Service (acting in its role as a Responsible Authority under the Licensing Act 2003) had made an application on 13th September, 2021, to review the Premises Licence in place at Pizza Pizza.  The application was submitted as a result of concerns around the management of the premises by the Licence Holder and the Designated Premises Supervisor following an incident of disorder in the vicinity of the premises.


The premises were licenced for late night refreshment and the sale of alcohol for consumption off the premises only.


Following submission of the review paperwork, 3 additional responses had been received.


Following detailed discussions with the Licence Holder, significant improvements had been made in order to uphold the licensing objectives and satisfied that all conditions on the Premises Licence had been implemented and adhered to.  All staff had been retrained and had a good understanding of the Licensing Act and there had been no further incidents in the immediate vicinity of the premises.  Accordingly, the applicant for the review had withdrawn the review application.  However, the 3 representations had not been withdrawn.


Mr. Koohi, Licence Holder, was in attendance at the hearing.


The Sub-Committee heard representations from Councillor Tinsley and Parish Councillor Biggin, on behalf of Maltby Town Council.  Their objections centred around:-


-        Lack of control around the sale of alcohol

-        Anti-social behaviour in the area caused by the actions of the Premises Licence Holder

-        Failure to adhere to the conditions attached to the licence

-        Lack of effective management of the activities taking place at the premises resulting in the licensing objectives being undermined


Mr. Koohi addressed the concerns raised by the objectors.


The Sub-Committee considered the application for the review 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

Public safety

The prevention of public nuisance

The protection of children from harm


Resolved:-  That no further action be taken.
