The Sub-Committee heard representations from:

 

·       Ms Rebecca Ingram (Kuit Steinart Levy LLP), on behalf of the applicant;

·       Mr Christopher Adams (applicant), in support of his application;

·       Mr Jamie Rae (proposed manager), in support of the application;

·       a local resident in support of the application;

·       numerous local residents objecting to the application.

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting was held remotely.  

 

At the end of their representations each of the interested parties confirmed that they were satisfied that they had said all they 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.
