Licensing Act 2003 - Lavang, 478 Fulwood Road, Sheffield, S10 3QD

Report of the Chief Licensing Officer

Minutes:

4.1

The Chief Licensing Officer submitted a report to consider an application for a Premises Licence made under Section 17 of the Licensing Act 2003, in respect of the premises known as Lavang, 478 Fulwood Road, Sheffield, S10 3QD.

 

 

4.2

Present at the meeting were Noshad Parbez, Azmol Ali and Jabed Kawsar (Applicants), Abdurahman El-Awal and Graham Barker (Objectors), David McLeavy (Witness for the Objectors), Clive Stephenson (Licensing Strategy and Policy Officer), Marie-Claire Frankie (Solicitor to the Sub-Committee) and John Turner (Democratic Services).

 

 

4.3

Marie-Claire Frankie outlined the procedure which would be followed during the hearing.

 

 

4.4

Clive Stephenson presented the report to the Sub-Committee and it was noted that four public objections had been received.  Two public objectors attended the meeting and the other two, who had been invited to the meeting, were not present.  Mr McLeavy, whose representations had been submitted, but not received by the Licensing Service within the required timescale, was afforded the opportunity to speak as a witness for the objectors in attendance.

 

 

4.5

Graham Barker stated that the main entrance to the premises was on Tom Lane, and within a residential area, with very little parking.  There was a church and dental practice in the area, as well as a primary school directly across the road and the restaurant opening would create further problems in terms of the safety of the school children, in terms of increased traffic.  Mr Barker stated that Tom Lane was used as a cut through for traffic, and also by people parking there, and getting the bus into town.  He stressed that drivers were already parking on the double yellow lines directly outside the premises.  Mr Barker stated that with the premises being situated so close to residential properties on Tom Lane, a number of residents, which included families with young children, would suffer noise nuisance from customers leaving the premises late at night. 

 

 

4.6

Abdurahman El-Awal also expressed concerns with regard to potential noise nuisance connected with the operation of the premises, indicating that if the restaurant was to open until 23:00 hours, with drinking and eating up time, this could result in customers leaving the premises very late at night.  He stated that local residents would also be affected by the noise created by glass bottles being emptied into the external bins, as well as the possibility of being adversely affected by cooking smells.  In terms of the parking problems, Mr El-Awal stated that the area was already very congested with parking from local residents, who often struggled to find a parking space outside their own homes, and the problems would only worsen with the opening of a restaurant.  He considered that there would be added problems as the applicants were wanting to sell alcohol, in that some customers would be likely to drive to the premises, then leave their cars on one of the surrounding streets, and collect them in the morning.  From a personal point of view, he stated  ...  view the full minutes text for item 4.
