Report of the Head of Highways and Public Protection
The Sub-Committee considered the report of the Head of Highways and Public Protection regarding an application by Mr Patrick Farrell for the Grant of a Premises Licence in respect of the above premises.
A letter of objection to the application had been received from a local resident and this necessitated a hearing for which the Sub-Committee had been convened. The objector was not present at the meeting.
The Sub-Committee heard representations from Mr Patrick Farrell (applicant), in support of his application.
At the end of his representations, the applicant confirmed that he was satisfied that he had said all he wished to say.
The Sub-Committee retired under Regulation 14(2) of the Licensing Act (Hearings) Regulations 2005 (as amended) and thereby excluded the press and public whilst they reached their decision on the application. The Sub-Committee returned to give their decision in public.
The application for the Grant of a Premises Licence in respect of Liverpool County Football Association CIC, be granted subject to the following amended hours:
The Sub-Committee has heard from the Applicant Mr Patrick Farrell, and has considered the written representation of the local resident objecting to the application.
The Sub-Committee is cognisant of the fact that no representations were received in response to the application from any of the Responsible Authorities.
The Sub-Committee note that this application is for the grant of a new Premises Licence and are bound to have regard to the appropriate legislation, Guidance and to Sefton Council’s own Statement of Licensing Policy.
The Sub-Committee is satisfied that the Applicant has sufficient knowledge and experience of the licensing trade and has shown his respect for local residents and community in attempts to engage with the local community. The Sub-Committee is pleased to note this and hopes that this will continue into the future.
The Sub-Committee concluded that should any concerns of the resident come to fruition, in respect of this premises, the interested party would have the right to request a Review of the Premises Licence.
