Minutes:

4.1

The Chief Licensing Officer submitted reports to consider the renewal of two Static Street Trading Consents outside Botanical Gardens, Clarkehouse Road, following the implementation of a new Traffic Regulation Order at the current consent site.

 

 

4.2

Present at the meeting were Andrew Cuneo and Inglana Saqlani (Consent Holders), Peter Devoti, Zoe Devoti and Mrs. Heath (Consent Holders), Ben Brailsford (Parking Services Manager), Matthew Lowe (Engineer, Strategic Traffic and  Infrastructure), Simon Botterill (Transport Projects Service Manager), Jayne Gough (Licensing Strategy and Policy Officer), Samantha Bond (Legal Adviser to the Sub-Committee) and Jennie Skiba (Democratic Services).

 

 

4.3

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

 

 

4.4

Jayne Gough informed the Sub-Committee that the site was shared, on different days, by Mr. and Mrs. Cuneo and Mrs Heath and Mrs Vilela and she asked the consent holders whether they were happy for both cases to be heard at the same time, to which they confirmed they were.  Ms. Gough presented the reports to the Sub-Committee.

 

 

4.5

At the meeting of this case held on 14th October, 2019, Mr. Cuneo had said that his family had sold ice cream in the city for 150 years and on the site in question for the past 50 years, 18 of those years with a consent to trade and he was well known in the area and had regular customers.  He said that one day in May, 2019 he had parked as normal at the site and had received a parking ticket.  Although he parked on double yellow lines, he had always been allowed to park at the site by the Licensing Service, and he contacted them to enquire why he should be issued with a parking ticket now.  The Licensing Service said they would contact the Highways Department and contact him again.  Jayne Gough, on behalf of the Licensing Service had stated at the meeting, that the Service had been unaware of the proposed Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) until Mr. Cuneo had sent the parking ticket to them.  Mr. Cuneo said that ice cream pitches were built up over the years and there wasn’t anywhere else within the area to move to, so if a compromise could not be reached, there was a threat to the livelihood not only to himself but also to the other consent holder.  Jayne Gough stated that the Licensing Authority has no power to override a TRO but the Service would assist the consent holders in finding an alternative site if necessary.  The decision taken at that meeting was to defer the matter, subject to a meeting being arranged between the consent holders and officers of the Licensing Service, the Highways Department, Parking Services and the Parks and Countryside Service for agreement to be reached in this case.

 

 

4.6

Andrew Cuneo said that he would prefer for the case to be deferred pending the outcome of the judicial review which had been undertaken in relation to this case.  He reiterated the case regarding  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.

Licensing Act 2003 - The Hairband, 625 Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11 8PT pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Report of the Chief Licensing Officer

Minutes:

5.1

The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application, made under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003, for the grant of a premises licence in respect of premises known as The Hairband, 625 Ecclesall Road, Sheffield S11 8PT (Case No.122/19).

 

 

5.2

Present at the meeting were Michael West (Objector), Stewart Gibson (Licence Agent), Wayne Cade (Director, The Hairband UK Limited, Applicant), Jayne Gough (Licensing Strategy and Policy Officer), Samantha Bond (legal adviser to the Sub-Committee) and Jennie Skiba (Democratic Services).

 

 

5.3

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

 

 

5.4

Jayne Gough presented the report to the Sub-Committee, and it was reported that representations had been received from seven local residents, and were attached at Appendix “B” to the report.

 

 

5.5

Michael West stated that he was representing the Botanical Gate Community Association, and his concern was that the staff employed at the premises, were not trained to serve or be responsible for the serving of alcohol.  He said that staff could not be expected to control customers who might have drunk too much and possibly take their drinks outside the premises.  Mr. West also said that he had safeguarding concerns as children may be present at times when alcohol was being served.

 

 

5.6

Stewart Gibson said that the hair salon has been there for over 40 years and the reason for the application is to enable alcohol to be sold as part of the hair treatment package for those who wish to buy it.  He stated that it would not be the primary purpose of staff to serve alcohol, as with alcohol-led premises.  It was envisaged that a glass of wine or prosecco, or occasionally a bottle of beer, may be offered to customers when they are in the chair waiting for their hair/beauty treatment, in the same way they were offered tea or coffee.  The price of the alcohol will be included in the treatment for which the customer has attended and they are unlikely to be given more than one drink as this would not be commercially viable.  He stated that staff will be trained and retrained throughout the year and the owner, who will be the Personal Licence Holder and Designated Premises Supervisor, will be in the salon every day.  Also, a member of staff will be trained to be a Personal Licence Holder in his absence. Mr. Gibson stated that the premises would be open later until 8.30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, and therefore it was unlikely they would contribute to any noise nuisance or anti-social behaviour.

 

 

5.7

Jayne Gough outlined the options open to the Sub-Committee.

 

 

5.8

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  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
