Consultations - Licensing Act 2003

Applications:

These are the recently received applications for new licences/registrations and applications to vary existing licences/registrations:

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.

Committee Hearing: Not required for a minor variation

For a minor variation application, in addition to the statutory public consultation, the Licensing Authority has the discretion to consult any responsible authorities it considers necessary and relevant to the type of application. In this case, as it involved changes to the conditions of the licence that could potentially have implications to the licensing objectives Sussex Police, The Fire & Rescue Service and the Environmental Protection Team were consulted.

No formal representations were received from members of the public or authorities consulted. After due consideration officers consider the changes proposed unlikely to have an adverse effect on the licensing objectives. Consequently, the minor variation has been granted as per the terms of the Licensing Act 2003.

Licence holder and applicant: Mr Gopalan Ketheeswaran

Consultation closes: Sunday 17 February 2019

Committee Hearing: Held on Thursday 7 March 2019

The application was the subject of formal representation from a responsible authority and 14 members of the public. Consequently it fell to a Licensing & Control Sub-Committee to determine.

Before the hearing mediation took place between the applicant and the Responsible Authority, Sussex Police, and a number of conditions to address the Police concerns were agreed. These included conditions regarding CCTV, Door Supervision, Staff Training and Pubwatch membership amomng others. Sussex Police consequently withdrew their objections. At the hearing the applicant offered some further conditions to address concerns expressed by residents.

After due consideration the Sub-Committee resolved that a Premises Licence be granted but with amended hours imposed and a number of conditions to further the licensing objectives of the prevention of crime and disorder, the prevention of public nuisance, the protection of children from harm.

Having considered the application, the written representations made by the responsible authority, those made by members of the public and the oral representations made at the hearing. The licensing sub-committee was satisfied that with the additional conditions agreed by the applicant that granting the licence for the sale of alcohol, late night refreshment and entertainment in the amended terms would not undermine the licensing objectives.
