DECISION

 

 

1.   INTRODUCTION:

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee carefully considered the application for a new premises licence at ‘MICRO PUB’ 187 SOUTHBOROUGH LANE, BROMLEY, BR2 8AR.

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee made the following decision having regard to:

 

-  the four licensing objectives,

-  the Council’s current Statement of Licensing Policy

-  guidance issued under the Licensing Act 2003; The Secretary of State guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 (As amended),

-  written and oral representations by the Applicant, 

-  written and oral representations by Local Resident (s),

 

The Decision of the Licensing Sub-Committee was:

 

The Licensing Sub-Committee decided to Grant the premises licence subject to the agreed conditions at the Hearing on the 7th November 2018.

 

The hearing was conducted in a manner which the Chairman allowed in order to hear the views of all parties. At various intervals, questions were asked of the relevant parties in order to obtain more information and or clarification.

 

2.   THE APPLICANT’S CASE:

 

The Applicant introduced himself and gave his background in the licensed trade and his long experience in the sale of alcoholic beverages.  The Applicant mentioned that the Council had shown some encouragement towards the existence of Public Houses in the borough through the Draft Local Plan, and that his prospective clientele would most likely be middle aged persons attracted to the sale of locally brewed real ale, and accordingly a separate market to that currently provided for in the immediate vicinity.

 

The capacity of the venue was for up to 50 persons.

 

He said that there had been no objections made by the Metropolitan Police nor any other responsible authority.

 

In response to a Member’s question, the Applicant stated that the application was for the above premises and the outside seating area immediately in front of the premises.

 

In response to a Member’s question arising from this, the Licensing Team Manager, mentioned that there was no automatic use of the outside space and in relation to this a separate application would be required from the Council’s Highways Division. 

 

At the Hearing, the Applicant mentioned that when he moved into the area, he communicated to the residents his intention to open the above ‘Micro Pub’. He mentioned that he had received positive comments from some of the residents.

The Applicant said that he was seeking to work with the Council, the Metropolitan Police and local residents. 

 

In response to comments made by the complainants, the Applicant offered to reduce the opening hours and restrict opening times to members of the public Mondays to Sundays  from 12:00 noon to finish serving at 22:30 hours (with a supplemental half  hour drinking up time).

 

Separately, with regard to the delivery/emptying waste/bottles hours, the Applicant offered to reduced hours: to start at 09:00hours to finish at 17:00 hours.

 

In response to concerns expressed by complainants that drinks would be taken onto the grass border in front of the premises and adjacent to the road, the applicant assured the Chairman that he would discourage such behaviour  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.
