Licensing Act 2003 - Application for a variation to a Premises Licence - Four Marks Benians Sports Pavilion pdf icon PDF 77 KB

Report of the Senior Environmental Health Officer (Licensing), enclosed.

Additional documents:


Senior Environmental Health Officer (Licensing) introduced the report, which concerned an application made by Four Marks Bernard Benian Sports and Recreation Club to vary a premises licence for Four Marks Benians Sports Pavilion. 


She referred to the plan of the building shown on page 23 of the agenda, which stated that the playing of recorded music would only take place in the areas marked with diagonal lines.  This would not be the case, as it would apply to the whole of the area of licensable activities, which would include all areas within the premises and the area outside of the premises within the red boundary.  A copy of a plan outlining this area was distributed to all parties.


To summarise, the premises was currently licensed for the supply of alcohol and the playing of recorded music.  The supply of alcohol was currently for consumption on the premises between 11am and 11pm Monday to Sunday and the playing of recorded music indoors between 11am and 11pm Monday to Sunday.  She corrected the information that had been included on page two of the agenda, in that the supply of alcohol had been requested to 23:30 on Thursdays, rather than 23:00.  She also highlighted that the applicant had requested the sale of alcohol both on and off the premises.  The applicant had outlined the measures that would be taken to promote the licensing objectives and this information had been included on pages 18 and 19 of the agenda.


The Hearing had been called because valid representations had been received frim interested parties, which had been included in full at Appendix D of the agenda.  The representations related to the prevention of crime and disorder, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.  She displayed a map which showed the location of where the representations had come from in relation to the location of the premises.


All responsible authorities had been consulted and responses received from Child Protection, Environmental Protection and Hampshire Fire and Rescue.  No representations had been made.


In determining the application the sub-committee was advised that it could:


·      grant the application;

·      modify the conditions of the licence by altering, omitting or adding to them; or

·      reject the whole or part of the application.


Mr Whitfield, who had made a valid representation, had advised by email that he would be unable to attend the Hearing.  In his email he reiterated that he thought 11pm was late enough for a village setting.  In addition, he stated that even at 11pm, it was well past 11.30pm before everyone had left the venue and packed up, so if approval was given for 00.30, it would be 1am before noise ceased.  He added that ‘These are not the people I want wandering around at 1am in the morning in my street.’


Mr Richard and Ms Nicola Ewart, who had both made valid representation, had also advised by email that they would be unable to attend the Hearing.  They had stated in  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10.
