Report of the Chief Licensing Officer



The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application, under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003, for the grant of a premises licence in respect of premises licence at 705 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield S7 3BE (Ref No. 23/19).




Present at the meeting were Clive Stephenson (Licensing Strategy and Policy Officer), Samantha Bond (Legal Adviser to the Sub-Committee) and Jennie Skiba (Democratic Services).




The Chair outlined the procedure which would be followed during the hearing.




Clive Stephenson presented the report to the Sub-Committee, and it was noted that a petition, containing 53 signatures, had been received and was attached at Appendix “C” to the report.




The applicant and the objectors, who had been invited, did not attend the hearing, although the applicant had informed the Licensing Service before the meeting of his intention not to attend.  The Sub-Committee therefore agreed to consider the application in their absence.




Clive Stephenson reported on the options open to the Sub-Committee.




RESOLVED: That the public and press and attendees involved in the application be excluded from the meeting before further discussion takes place on the grounds that, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted, if those persons were present, there would be a disclosure to them of exempt information as described in paragraph 5 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, as amended.




Samantha Bond reported orally, giving legal advice on various aspects of the application.




At this stage in the proceedings, the meeting was re-opened to the public and press and attendees.




RESOLVED: That, in the light of the information contained in the report now submitted, the application for a premises licence in respect of 705 Abbeydale Road, Sheffield S7 2BE (Ref No.23/19), be granted with the amended operating schedule as agreed with the statutory authorities during the consultation period.




(The full reasons for the Sub-Committee’s decision will be included in the written Notice of Determination.)
