To consider an application for the variation of a Premises Licence for Bargain Booze, Broad Street, Crewe
The Sub-Committee had been informed that, as the applicant had formally amended the application and was no longer applying to extend the opening hours/hours for the sale of alcohol on a Sunday night from 22.30 to 23.00, the objection was no longer valid. There was therefore no requirement to hold a hearing with respect to above application.
To consider an application for a Premises Licence for Milton Park, Alsager
The Sub-Committee considered a report regarding an application from Cheshire East Borough Council for a Premises Licence for Milton Park, Alsager.
The following attended the hearing and made representations with respect to the application:
a local resident
a representative of the applicant
an individual supporting the application.
After a full hearing of the application and in accordance with the rules of procedure, the Chairman of the Sub-Committee reported that, after taking account of:
• The Secretary of State’s Guidance under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003
• Cheshire East Borough Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy
• The four licensing objectives (namely the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance, and the protection of children from harm)
• All the evidence, including the oral representations made at the meeting and the written representations of interested parties
the following course of action had been agreed:
That the application for a Premises Licence be granted as applied for, subject to the following additional condition:
There shall be a maximum of twelve events per year at which amplified live music or amplified recorded music is performed or played after 18.00.
