Premises Licence Application - Pypers Hatch Food and Wine pdf icon PDF 32 KB

Additional documents:


The Sub-Committee received a report on an application for a premises licence at Pypers Hatch for the sale of alcohol between the hours of 8.00-21.00 Mondays to Saturdays and 10.00–21.00 on Sundays.  It was noted that the premises were not currently trading.


Members of the Sub-Committee considered the report, which outlined the submissions from three objectors and responses to these objections from the applicant’s representative; together with evidence presented to the Hearing by the applicant’s representative, to determine the application in accordance with the provisions of the Licensing Act 2003 s18.


It was noted that the applicant’s representative offered up an addendum to the steps they intended to take to promote the prevention of crime and disorder, which was to add “any person under the influence of drugs” to the list of persons they would not serve with alcohol.    


In line with the procedure, the Sub-Committee members (accompanied by the Committee Clerk and Sub-Committee’s Legal Advisor) retired to consider the application.


The Sub-Committee reconvened in open session to give its decision, which would be confirmed in writing within five working days.


RESOLVED that the licence be granted subject to the conditions consistent with the operating schedule, as amended to include the addition offered up to the steps at M (b) point  5 (Page 24 of the agenda) to add “or any person under the influence of drugs”.
