Minutes:

Summary of the Decision:

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee considered the application for a new premises licence at  Econo Pizza, 51 Mottingham Road, SE9 4QZ, taking into consideration the relevant representations. The Committee took into consideration the four licensing objectives, the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy as amended, and the Guidance issued under the Licensing Act  as amended.

 

The Committee  decided to  Grant the application as stated in accordance with the revised application and added conditions.

 

Background to the Application:

 

The applicant applied for a premises licence;  the application was adjourned without prejudice on the 20th March 2019 to allow the applicant to complete a vital part of the application form which would clearly show how the applicant intends to promote the four licensing objectives. The missing operating schedule was necessary information for the Licensing Sub-committee in order to assess the application.

 

The Applicant’s Case:

 

The Committee was informed that following the adjourned hearing on the 20th March 2019, the applicant provided the relevant information and agreed to conditions to the licence which were included in the application. The CCTV as requested by the Metropolitan Police would be in use, the Accident Book in place, and the revised late trading hours would be as follows:

 

·  Sundays to Thursdays from 23:00 hours to 02:00 hours.

·  Fridays to Saturdays from 23:00 hours to 03:00  hours.

 

The main door and shutter would be closed at Midnight for takeaway customers. Only online orders would be delivered quietly by delivery drivers from the back door of the premises, as stated in the applicant’s application.

 

The applicant mentioned that his business will not be using noisy vehicles or motorbikes. The applicant said he would use electric vehicles for his business, and mentioned that the business already had one. The applicant mentioned that he had no control over Uber vehicles. His staff however, would undergo appropriate training and  they would be trained to work quietly and to respect the neighbourhood. In response to a question regarding noise emanating from a rear access gate, the applicant said it was not a very noisy gate--however, he agreed to contact his landlord in order to resolve the issue. The applicant mentioned he was aware of the conditions to the licence.  Members reminded the applicant to adhere to the conditions of the licence.

 

The status of the applicant’s planning application for a certificate of lawfulness:

 

The applicant mentioned that he had submitted an application to the Planning Department at the  Council and that it is was yet to be determined.  In addition, the previous owner of the premises had provided a statutory declaration which confirmed the previous class use of the premises being A3 and A5.

 

Comments from the Licensing Team:

 

The Licensing Team Manager mentioned that the current hearing was different from the previous hearing which was adjourned on 20/3/2019, because the applicant had submitted a revised application and accepted the proposed police conditions to include revised operating hours .

 

At the Hearing there was a discussion with the applicant and with  ...  view the full minutes text for item 19.
