Report of the Licensing Officer enclosed.

Additional documents:


Chris Arm, Licensing Officer introduced the report. The Hearing related to an application made by Licensing Lawyers on behalf of Mr Graham Trott trading as Triple FFF Brewery for a new premises licence for Triple FFF Brewery Shop, Old Magpie Works, Station Approach, Four Marks.


The Licensing Officer stated upon visiting the premises, he was concerned the plan submitted by the applicant was not correct as it did not show the fixed structures i.e. bar area, log burner and other fixed objects. This was important as the Licensing Act 2003 stated that any immovable objects must be visible on all plans submitted for a premises licence. The Licensing Officer advised the sub-committee that if the application was granted, he would speak to Mr Trott after the Hearing regarding this, as it could be amended later as a minor variation.


The applicant requested a premises licence for the supply of alcohol on and off the premises, Monday to Sunday 10am to 11pm and the opening hours of Monday-Saturday from 8am to 11pm and Sunday 9am to 11pm. The sub-committee was asked to note that the premises currently held two premises licences which could be seen in Appendix E and Appendix F of the agenda. The application asked the applicant to state how they would promote the licensing objectives and this was detailed on page 22 of the agenda.


The Hearing had been called because representations had been received from interested parties as shown in full in Appendix D. The representations related to public safety, the prevention of crime and disorder and the prevention of public nuisance.


All responsible authorities had been consulted.


Hampshire Police had agreed conditions with Mr Trott which the sub-committee had to consider to be added to the Licence in regard to training, refusals/incident book, challenge 25, Premises Licence Holder/ Responsible Person, and CCTV. These appeared on pages 3 and 4 of the agenda.


The sub-committee was advised that in determining the application:


1.    They may grant the application as requested;

2.    Modify conditions to the licence by altering, omitting or adding to them; and/or

3.    Reject the whole of part of the application.


The Licensing Team had taken a phone call from Mr Bently the day before the Hearing who advised that he had not made a representation concerning the application. Mr Bently confirmed his name and address these were the same as that provided by the person who made the representation detailed in Appendix D. However Mr Bently said he did not have any knowledge of it and did not object to the application. Mr Bently advised he did not have an email address or access to email and the representation had been received by email. The Licensing Team sent an email to this address after speaking to Mr Bently, asking the recipient to contact them by phone. The person returned the phone call and confirmed his name was Mr Bently and part of his address but when questioned for the full address he ended  ...  view the full minutes text for item 31.
