Report of the Chief Licensing Officer

4.1

The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application for the variation of a premises licence, made under Section 34 of the Licensing Act 2003, regarding Brocco on the Park, 92 Brocco Bank, Sheffield, S11 8RS (Ref No. 42/19).

Present at the meeting were Tiina Carr (Applicant), Michelle Hazelwood (John Gaunt and Partners, Solicitors, for the Applicant), Dr David Black (Objector), Scott Royal (supporting the application), Jayne Gough (Licensing Strategy and Policy Officer), Samantha Bond (Legal Adviser to the Sub-Committee) and John Turner (Democratic Services).

Samantha Bond outlined the procedure which would be followed during the hearing.

 

 

4.4

Jayne Gough presented the report to the Sub-Committee, and it was noted that four representations had been received from members of the public, three objecting to the application and one in support.  All four members of the public who had submitted representations had been invited to the meeting, and two attended the hearing, and addressed the Sub-Committee.

 

 

4.5

Dr David Black, who was attending in his own capacity, as well as on behalf of the two other members of the public who had submitted written objections to the application, stated that he lived very close to the premises, and considered the application to increase the hours regarding the sale of alcohol to be a significant change, and one which could have a detrimental effect on himself and other neighbours living within the immediate vicinity of the premises.  Dr Black stressed that he has never made any complaints, or raised any concerns, regarding the operation of the premises, but considered that the extension to the licensing hours would result in an increase in noise, both in terms of customers leaving the venue, and cars driving away, late at night.  He stated that there were several families, some with young children, living in the surrounding area, who would be affected by the potential increase in noise.  Dr Black made reference to recent advertisements he had seen, where the venue proposed to hold wedding functions for up to 60 people, and expressed concerns regarding the potential increase in noise and anti-social behaviour from customers leaving later at night.  He raised concerns with regard to the proposed sale of alcohol on the terrace area, specifically if the premises were sold on.

 

 

4.6

In response to questions raised by Members of, and the Legal Advisor to, the Sub-Committee, an explanation was provided as to the precise location of the premises, and Dr Black produced photographs, which mainly showed its location in relation to where he lived.  Jayne Gough confirmed that a notice regarding the application had been placed outside the premises, as well as in the local press, for a period of 28 days.  Dr Black stated that children would be detrimentally affected by the increase in licensing hours in that they would be affected by the likely increase in late-night noise, as well as being more exposed to customers drinking, and possibly being drunk in the external areas.  He confirmed that  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
