The applicant also applied for the following non-standard timings to be applicable for all licensable activities and the hours that the premises are open to the public:

 

  • New Year’s Eve – from the end of permitted hours until the beginning of permitted hours the next day.

.

Objections to the application had been received and this necessitated a hearing, for which the Sub-Committee had been convened.

 

The Chair advised the Sub-Committee that additional conditions had been agreed following representations from Merseyside Police and that as a result of these agreements, representations had been formally withdrawn.

 

The Sub-Committee heard representations from Mr Michael Edwards, Designated Premises Supervisor on behalf of the applicant and considered the written and oral representations of 3 local residents in objection to the application and another local resident who was called as witness.

 

All parties agreed the issues that were in contention and the procedure that was to be followed. There were no preliminary issues raised, and at the end of their representations, everyone confirmed 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 its decision in public.
