Election of Chairman
Sub Committee to elect a Chairman for the hearing
Cllr L Taylor was duly elected Chairman for the Sub Committee
An application has been received for a new premises licence for Sampford Peverell Recreation Ground and Sports Pavilion, Sampford Peverell, Tiverton, EX16 7BU.
Relevant representations have been received and the licensing authority (Mid Devon District Council) must hold a hearing to determine the application.
Consideration was given to a report * of the Lead Licensing Officer relating to an application that had been received by SAMPFORD PEVERELL RECREATION GROUND AND SPORTS PAVILION, SAMPFORD PEVERELL, TIVERTON, DEVON, EX16 7BU.
The Chairman introduced the members of the Sub Committee and the officers present and explained the process that the hearing would follow.
The Licensing Sub Committee agreed that the meeting should be heard in public session.
There were no interests to declare.
The Lead Licensing Officer outlined the contents of the report making reference to the following:
· The sports field and the fixed structure of the pavilion
· A plan of the site and building
· The application included an area for a temporary marquee
· The application was for live music/recorded music and the supply of alcohol
· The applicant had requested the requirement for a Designated Premises Supervisor be dis-applied which meant that the Management Committee would take responsibility for all licensing activities
The Conditions offered by the applicant included:
· Challenge 25 Policy
· Training for Staff
· Placement of notices
There had been no representations from responsible authorities.
The reason for the hearing was that a new premise license application had received representations objecting to the application and the District Council, as the Licensing Authority, was therefore obliged to hold a hearing to determine the application.
The objections received had alluded to issues with the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.
He explained the options available to the Sub Committee:
· Granting the licence as applied for
· Granting the licence subject to appropriate modifications necessary for the promotion of the licensing objectives
· Excluding from the scope of the licence any of the licensable activities to which the application relates
· Refusing to specify a Designated Premises Supervisor
· Rejecting the application
The Applicants for Sampford Peverell Recreation Ground and Sports Pavilion were asked to present their case to the Sub Committee.
Mr Adlington explained that the license applied for was the large CLIC Sargent event and additional charity events and for the benefit of the clubs that used the site to be able to generate income from small alcohol sales and it was not the case that the site would be hired out for large gatherings. He described the social aspect of the clubs using the site including the cricket club.
Mr Harding stated that members of the Cricket Club did not usually decamp to the local public house drink after games and that the license would be used for players and their families to have a drink after a game which would generate revenue for the Cricket Club. He explained that there had never been an issue with litter on the field and that there was CCTV on site which would monitor and antisocial instances if they were to occur.
Answering questions from the committee the applicants stated that the venue was not going to be advertised as a private venue, the location of the CCTV and that ... view the full minutes text for item 3.
