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

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

For a review of a premises licence, or a club premises certificate, a hearing must be held.

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.

The representations objecting to what was being proposed were received from Sussex Police, the Environmental Protection Team and a petition signed by 12 local residents.

In such circumstances the Licensing Act encourages mediation and if agreement cannot be reached the matter is referred then to a Licensing & Control Sub-Committee to consider the application and representations at hearing.

Mediation between the applicant and Responsible Authorities has been successful and a number of conditions have been agreed and would become enforceable conditions of any licence granted. Consequently the Responsible Authorities have withdrawn their objections.

Mediation between the applicant and the local residents that signed the petition is on going. If agreement cannot be reached it will be referred to a Sub-Committee hearing for members to consider.

However, due to the current Covid 19 situation the scheduled hearing has been postponed and will be held at a later date.
