Policy:

Adur District Council, Worthing Borough Council and the Government often require feedback and public input into policy documents and will embark on public consultation. In this section you will find documents being consulted on at present:

Introduction

Below is a list of the applications under the Licensing Act 2003 that are outstanding and other licensing policy documents that the councils are currently consulting on or awaiting hearings.

All the applications and policy documents can be viewed in full at the Licensing Unit. All licensing hearings are held, in public, at the Adur Civic Centre or Worthing Town Hall unless otherwise noted.

Under the Act minor variation applications cannot be dealt with at hearing but for:

  • New premises licence applications
  • New club premises certificate applications
  • Full variations to existing licences

For those that receive relevant representations from 'Responsible Authorities' and/or any other person, and mediation is unsuccessful or impractical, a hearing is required.

A guide to making effective representations can be found at: Making representations. 

For a review of a premises licence, or a club premises certificate, a hearing must be held. A guide to the review process can be found here.

All relevant representations received could become public documents and could be published in their entirety in any report that accompanies an application or policy consultation.

It is an offence knowingly or recklessly to make a false statement in connection with an application made under the Licensing Act 2003 and the maximum fine for which a person is liable is £5,000 on summary conviction for the offence.

Four representations were received regarding this application. One from a Responsible Authority and three from members of the public. Mediation was only partially successful so the application was referred to a Licensing & Control Sub-Committee to consider at hearing.

The Sub-Committee considered all the written & oral representations and heard statements from the parties. It resolved that a Premises Licence be granted subject to the conditions agreed with Sussex Police during mediation.

In discharging its functions the Sub-Committee did so with a view to promoting the Licensing Objectives. The relevant objectives in this case being the prevention of crime & disorder, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm. The Sub-Committee listened carefully to all submissions and considered all the written representations made by the public and local residents and also considered the mediation conducted and the amended timings & conditions that had been agreed with Sussex Police.

The Licensing Sub-Committee was satisfied that with the inclusion of the additional conditions including the reduced opening hours of 0600hrs to 2300hrs the licensing objectives would not be undermined.
